LAMANOK ISLAND

Found in the easternmost tip of Anda is the Lamanok Island, which is underlain by massive to rubbly limestone deposits of the Late Miocene Sierra Bullones Formation. Prominent tidal notches can be observed around the edge of the island facing Bohol Sea showing dynamic movement of the sea during the Neogene Period. Large fossils such as giant shells protrude out of the limestone outcrops and cave walls. This section of the Anda Peninsula is also considered the seat of Bohol’s civilization as archaeological artifacts and burial sites of ancient settlers are preserved.
