Mother Nature always has a way of surprising us with her wonders. And often, we stumble upon them in the most unusual ways. Take Bohol's latest hidden gem located in the municipality of Loon.

Recall that, in 2013, Bohol was hit by a devastating 7.2 magnitude earthquake that caused the coastal area in Loon to rise by 1.2 meters into a stretch of nothingness—at first. The coastline is about eight kilometers and passes through the towns of Loon and Maribojoc. It covers about 1.37 square kilometers and was declared by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) as a geological monument.

A few years later, the supposedly barren land bloomed with a mysterious red-orange plant.

This succulent-looking plant caused the area to be dubbed as Bohol's Coral Garden by the locals, because the area where they're sprouting is supposedly a coral bed. Currently, the plants are being studied for a more accurate classification. Little is known of these plants aside from the fact that they possess thick leaves that can store water.

Now, the place is slowly becoming a tourist destination for its autumn-like hues that stretch to impressive lengths, an instant hit for Instagrammers and adventurers alike.

If you're looking to visit the place yourself, do us all a favor and proceed with caution. Remember to avoid stepping on the plants to preserve their natural beauty.
