HOW TO GET TO SALAGDOONG BEACH RESORT

There’s a couple of options on how to get to Salagdoong Beach, and they are by scooter, habal habal or tricycle.

You can rent a scooter in Siquijor for as little as 250 pesos per day and make your own way over to Siquijor Salagdoong Beach Resort.

When you arrive in Siquijor by ferry, you’ll find that there are half a dozen scooter rental stores located at the ferry terminal which is super convenient. You can pick up a set of wheels for the time you plan to spend on Siquijor Island.

If you are not confident driving a scooter, the other option is to hail down a tricycle or habal habal (motorbike taxi) along the main road in San Juan and get a ride to Salagdoong Beach.

The cost depends on how good your bartering skills are, though for a 5o-minute drive you can expect to pay around 200-300 pesos.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT SALAGDOONG BEACH

Salagdoong Beach boasts two beautiful coves lined with coconut palms and white sand shorelines. Just off the shore is a colorful reef which is great for snorkeling and swimming. 

I would have to say the slippery slide and cliff jumping at Salagdoong Beach is the main attraction and one for the thrill-seekers! Make sure you must visit during high-tide to do these activities.

The slippery slide that visitors can try is located on top of the rock islet and twists down into the water. Unfortunately, it wasn’t functional on the day I visited so I didn’t get to give this one a try.

However, the cliff jumps at Salagdoong Beach were definitely up my alley! There are two diving boards here, one is around 5 meters and the other is 10 meters. Jumping from the top of the cliff into the turquoise waters below is one of the best things to do in Siquijor!

There is also a lifeguard on duty down at Salagdoong Beach Siquijor, so if you need any advice or help to do the cliff jumping don’t hesitate to ask them.

I recommend spending around 1 or 2 hours at Salagdoong Beach before continuing on to explore the rest of the Siquijor tourist spots.
