WHAT TO EXPECT AT PALITON BEACH

Paliton Beach faces west making it the perfect spot to watch the sunset on Siquijor Island with your mates!

There are a few oceanside cafes and beach bars dotted along Paliton Beach serving up cold brews and delicious meals. Most usually have happy hour between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm, so make sure to get there around this time if you want to score some cheap drinks.

There is no real party scene at Paliton Beach, just chilled vibes and likeminded people to hang with.

If you visit Paliton Beach during the day it’s just as good. You can find a number of tree swings tied to bent palms that you can have a turn on and swing out over the water’s edge!

Apart from that, there isn’t a whole lot more to do on Paliton Beach other than go swimming in the ocean, lay in a hammock underneath the coconut palms or read a book by the beach.

It really is one of the best beaches in Siquijor and I highly recommend adding Paliton Beach to your list of places to visit while on Siquijor Island.
