Natural beauty, intriguing folklore, and a deep cultural heritage

Siquijor is often referred to as the "Enchanted Isle" of the Philippines because of its a mystical history and beautiful setting.

This small island, located in the Central Visayas region, beckons you with its pristine beaches, lush forests, and intriguing folklore. Siquijor's reputation as a mystical island stems from its folklore and traditions. Visitors can explore the traditions of local healers and watch mystical rituals. The Balete Tree, a centuries-old tree, is said to be inhabited by spirits and is a popular stop for visitors.

Siquijor is known for its stunning beaches. Salagdoong Beach, with its crystal-clear waters and picturesque cliffs, is a favourite among visitors. Paliton Beach offers powdery white sand and shallow turquoise waters, perfect for swimming and relaxation. Siquijor's inland treasures include enchanting waterfalls and natural pools. Cambugahay Falls features tiered cascades and rope swings for adventurous visitors. Lugnason Falls and Lazi's Canlasog Falls are equally picturesque and serene. The waters around Siquijor offer excellent opportunities for island-hopping adventures. Explore Apo Island, a renowned marine sanctuary, for superb diving and snorkelling. Dolphins and turtles are common sightings during these excursions.

Despite its enchanting reputation, Siquijor also boasts historical and cultural landmarks. The Lazi Convent, one of the oldest and largest convents in the Philippines, is a historical treasure. The 400-year-old St. Isidore Labradore Church is a marvel of colonial architecture. Siquijor hosts vibrant festivals, such as the Siquijor Healing Festival and the Sandugan Festival, which showcase the island's cultural heritage. These events feature street dances, traditional music, and lively parades.

Siquijor's culinary scene includes local seafood delicacies and traditional Filipino dishes. Try the island's unique specialty, salagubang or beetle larvae, if you're feeling adventurous.

Whether you're seeking pristine beaches, mystical traditions, or cultural experiences, Siquijor has it all.
