Siquijor Island Day Tour

Upon pick up at your hotel or at the seaport, you will go directly to Salagdoong Beach 6 kms northeast of Maria, this place is favorite by the locals and is great for swimming but along the way, be amazed as you will see the beautiful Man Made Forest is Salagdoong, the biggest in the island. Proceed to the town of Lazi and be amazed with Cambugahay Falls, a impressive 3 tiered waterfalls. This place is the highlight of tourism in Siquijor Island and great for swimming and you can also jump from one tier of the waterfall. There is also a rope swing in all of the falls. Also, a visit to Capilay Spring Park, a natural spring fed swimming pool in the centre of San Juan. A favorite with the locals at weekends. Another attraction in Siquijor for tourist who are interested in old historical sites is the San Isidro Labrador Convent, reputed to be the biggest and one of the oldest convents in the Philippines, the Spaniards started construction in 1887 and was completed in 1894. This was declared as a historical landmark by the Philippine Historical Commission. Be enchanted with the famous Balete Tree,this old tree covered in hundreds of roots and vines. Under the tree is a natural free fish spa, which is probably more entertaining and interesting than the tree itself! Finally, before ending your whole day tour, you get a chance to visit Siquijor's pride of reforestation in the Mangrove Forest Farm, this nursery beach head site will completely give you a fresh natural air for it's natures beauty.

Siquijor Island

Siquijor is an island province located at the Central Visayas Region of the Philippines. It is composed of six towns; Enrique Villanueva, Larena, Lazi, Maria, San Juan and Siquijor. The island is bordered on the northwest by Cebu and Negros islands, on the northeast by Bohol, and on the south by the northern Mindanao provinces of Misamis Occidental (Dapitan) and Zamboanga del Norte (Dipolog). Often dubbed as, the Isla del Fuego (the island of fire) due to the glow it gives off during sundown as multitude of fireflies gather on the molave trees off the island, it is a place of mystery and mysticism especially for older generations who believes in witchcraft and sorcery. And indeed, the said practice is still being observed in Siquijor, albeit on a less prevalent scale as it was before. I find that most people would look strangely on you if you mention that you’re traveling to Siquijor, the island having its reputation with the black arts, but once you get pass that—and it is really not a problem when on the island itself—the place would reward you with amazing tourist spots such as pristine beaches, amazing waterfalls, lush hiking trails, centuries old stone churches, and yes, even the sweetest people.   Siquijor Explore Tour   - Siquijor Church (St. Francis de Asisi)    - Siquijor Boulevard    - Capilay Spring Park    - Tubod Beach    - Lugnason Falls    - Balete Tree    - Lazi Church & Convent (San Isidro Labrador)    - Lunch    - Cambugahay Falls    - Kagusuan Beach    - Maria Church (Sta.
