Dauis is a fourth income class municipality in the province of Bohol, Philippines. According to the 2010 census, it has a population of 39,448. It is one of two municipalities located on Panglao Island.
According to local natives a deep well was constructed in Upper Songculan, Dauis, Bohol in the year 1900 by a Spaniard leader. The locals provided the labor. The well depth is more or less 30 fathoms (55 m; 180 ft) and the diameter is more or less three metres (9.8 ft). Information revealed that the well was constructed through manual digging using bolos, crowbars, pulleys, and rope for digging into the soil stones, which contains limestone rock.
The first bridge between poblacion of Dauis and Mansasa, Tagbilaran was constructed by Spaniards during their reign, possibly in the 18th century. The bridge is still there and in place, used as a connection between the two islands. The other bridge was constructed near the old City Hall of Tagbilaran City, crossing towards Totolan, Dauis. That bridge is known as ‘the causeway’ and leads as far as Panglao Beach resort about 17 kilometres (11 mi) from Tagbilaran.
