Panglao’s town center, a few meters off the pier, gives no indication whatsoever that part of its coastline is home to sprawling five-stars and a Boracay-like ambience just five minutes away. Those who are rather tired of sunsets at Alona Beach—the more touristy portion of Panglao—can troop to this pier instead, where mangroves line either side and the view of the sun as it sets on the horizon is just as stunning.
