Siquijor Philippines: A Mystical Paradise Travel Guide

Cambuhagay Falls

This place one of the must-sees in the island and one of my favorites. These are three-tiered cascading falls in the middle of a lush forest, and its incredible turquoise color waters. It’s perfectly safe to go in and go for a refreshing dive.

Salagdoong Beach

Salagdoong beach with its powdery white sand and crystal-clear waters. One of the best beaches in the island. If you want to unwind and relax far away from stress, this beach is a perfect island getaway.

Kagusuan Beach 

a white-sand beach surrounded by emerald-green waters. It’s a remote but beautiful beach with no resort in sight. You could have easily spent hours just lazing away here. Kagusuan Beach is situated well off the main highway and one can easily get lost trying to find it without a local guide.

St. Francis of Assisi Church

Like in the entire country, Siquijor has a very Catholic population and churches are everywhere. The church of St. Francis of Assissi is a historical landmark in Siquijor and most probably the first one you’ll see. Built in 1774, it preserves the old colonial style from old Spanish churches.

Old Enchanted Balete Tree

A 400-year-old tree with a pond in front of it; filled with beautiful fishes. The tree is believed to be the source of water for the pond (that’s what the locals residents believe). Anyhow, whatever the reasons are, it seems like a nice pit stop on the way to San Juan from Lazi. The tree is situated very close to the national highway and, therefore, cannot be missed.
