GETTING AROUND SIQUIJOR ISLAND

There’s a couple of options on getting around to all the Siquijor tourist spots and they are by scooter, habal habal, tricycle or Jeepney.

You can rent a scooter in Siquijor for as little as 250 pesos per day and make your own way around the island at your own pace.

When you arrive in Siquijor by ferry, you’ll find that there are half a dozen scooter rental stores located at the Larena 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 Jeepney, tricycle or habal habal (motorbike taxi) along the main road in Larena and get a ride to San Juan, the main tourist hub of Siquijor.

The cost depends on how good your bartering skills are, though for a 40-minute drive from Larena to San Juan in a Jeepney should be around 100 pesos, in a tricycle 500 pesos and habal-habal 350 pesos. Note that these prices are rough estimates.

Exploring Siquijor Tourist Spots by scooter

 

BEST TIME TO VISIT SIQUIJOR

The best time to visit Siquijor, weather-wise, is between April and July when temperatures are hot and there is barely any rainfall. This is also high season in Siquijor, so expect to see many tourists during these months.

I recommend visiting Siquijor on the shoulder months of the high season between November and March which sees a bit of rainfall but usually only lasts for a couple of hours and the rest of the day is sunny.

Try to avoid the typhoon season in Siquijor which is between August and October.

PALITON BEACH

The first thing that should be on the top of your Siquijor tourist spots list is to hit the beach! Paliton Beach is rated as one of the best beaches in Siquijor for it’s glistening white sands and palm tree fringed shoreline. This is one tourist spot in Siquijor you do not want to miss!

Paliton Beach is located in the main tourist area of San Juan on Siquijor Island. Most accommodations are dotted along the main road in San Juan so it is within walking distance to get to Paliton Beach.

Paliton Beach faces west making it the perfect Siquijor tourist spot to watch the sunset on the sand 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 4pm and 6pm, so make sure to get there around this time if you want to score some cheap drinks.

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 then go swimming in the ocean, lay in a hammock underneath the coconut palms or read a book by the beach.

Paliton Beach really is the best beach in Siquijor and I highly recommend adding this epic spot to your Siquijor itinerary.

CAMBUGAHAY FALLS

Cambugahay Falls is arguably the best waterfall in Siquijor! Cambugahay Falls is most famous for its tiered levels and freshwater cascades that are surrounded by lush rainforest which is why it’s one of the most popular Siquijor tourist spots!

Must Read → 3 Weeks Philippines Itinerary

Cambugahay Falls is located in Lazi which is approximately a 30-minute drive from San Juan to reach the falls and the entrance fee is 20 pesos. You may also have to pay a donation fee for parking. 

From the jump-off point, it takes around 5-minutes to walk down a set of concrete steps to reach the first level of Cambugahay Falls. This epic Siquijor tourist spot features a large natural swimming hole and some man-made structures including rope swings, bamboo rafts and a wide set of falls. 

Unfortunately, when I visited Cambugahay Falls the water inside the swimming holes was brown, dirty and not that inviting due to heavy rains the night before. I was a little disappointed when I didn’t get to experience the true beauty of the Siquijor tourist spot, but hey, that’s just mother nature.

Besides the bottom swimming hole, there are a few more levels of Cambugahay Falls to explore. Follow the trail upstream and across the bamboo bridges to where you will find more freshwater swimming holes, flowing rock pools and several cliff jumping spots.

SALAGDOONG BEACH & CLIFF JUMP

Salagdoong Beach is hands down one of the best beaches in Siquijor which is most popular for snorkeling around the colorful reefs, relaxing on the secluded beaches and epic cliff jumping! I highly recommend adding Salagdoong Beach to your list of things to do in Siquijor!

Salagdoong Beach is attached to Salagdoong Beach Resort on the far east corner of Siquijor Island in the town of Maria. From San Juan, it’s approximately a 50-minute drive to reach Salagdoong Beach and the entrance fee is 30 pesos per person plus an additional 20 pesos for parking.

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 cliff jumps at this Siquijor 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!

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

CENTURY OLD BALETE TREE

The Century Old Balete Tree is one of the most visited Siquijor tourist spots on the island and it’s easy to see why! This 400-year-old tree is worthy of a quick stop during your adventures around Siquijor.

Century Old Balete Tree is located in Lazi on the south coast of Siquijor Island Philippines. From San Juan, it’s approximately a 20-minute drive to reach this Siquijor tourist destination and the entrance fee is only 10 pesos.

The 400-year-old  Enchanted Balete Tree in Siquijor has a very mystical and spiritual background. It’s a place that local shamen’s use for sacred rituals, however, I didn’t see any witchcraft when I visited.

 

Universal Power Adapter: Don’t leave home without one! I highly recommend getting this Universal Power Adapter so that you are able to charge all of your electronics when you’re on the road. Compatible in Asia, UK, Europe, Africa, USA, SA and Australia.

At the base of the Century Old Balete Tree is a small freshwater pond filled with fish that will nibble the dead skin off the soles of your feet if you dip them in. Enjoy your fish foot spa while marveling up at the thick canopy and huge vines that hang from the Old Enchanted Balete Tree.

Next to the Century Old Tree in Siquijor there is a two-story restaurant where you can grab a meal with drinks and also a souvenir store selling all sorts of gifts.

LUGNASON FALLS 

Lugnason Falls, also known as Zodiac Falls, is up there with one of the top 3 waterfalls in Siquijor that I highly recommend adding to your Siquijor itinerary!

Lugnason Falls is located in the main tourist area of San Juan, From Paliton Beach, it’s approximately a 15-minute drive inland to reach this popular tourist spot in Siquijor. The entrance is free though you may be asked to pay a small parking fee of 10 pesos.

From the jump-off point, It takes around 15-minutes to walk along a dirt trail through the forest to reach Lugnason Falls.

Lugnason Falls features a 5 meter waterfall and a large spring filled with blue Gatorade colored water. It’s an adventurer’s playground and reminded me of the blue ass water that I found at Kawasan Falls in Cebu.

Lugnason Falls is a great spot to hang out and go swimming under the falls to cool off. For the thrill-seekers, jumping from the top of the falls into the catch basin below is a lot of fun too!

Don’t end the adventure here as there are more unique spots to be found in the same valley as Lugnason Falls. Follow the jungle trail downstream to where you will find man-made aqua ducts and an epic cold spring perfect for swimming!

VISIT THE LAZI CHURCH

Lazi Church, also known as San Isidro Labrador Parish Church, is a popular addition on most people’s Siquijor tourist spots list. The Lazi Church is the oldest, the largest and the most significant Roman Catholic Church on Siquijor Island Philippines.

San Isidro Labrador Parish Church is located in Lazi on the south coast of Siquijor Island. From San Juan, it’s approximately a 20-minute drive to reach this Siquijor tourist attraction.

WANT TO SAVE $$$ ON AIRBNB? GET MY AIRBNB MONEY SAVING GUIDE

The construction of Lazi Church was completed in 1884 and was built mainly with stone and hardwood. The bell tower attached to one side of the church was built one year later which is the most dominant feature on the outside.

Next to the church, you can also find a silent convent which acts as a museum that holds many old artifacts and antiques. The entrance fee at the museum is around 20 pesos.

Lazi Church also plays home to large masses and it’s possible to take a tour inside of this century old church with a priest.

If you’re looking for what to do in Siquijor, I highly recommend adding a short visit to Lazi Church to your Siquijor itinerary.

QUISOL MOUNTAIN VIEW

Quisol Mountain View boasts one of the best panoramic viewpoints which overlooks Siquijor Island and it’s pristine coastlines! This epic viewpoint is an off the beaten path adventure that is easy to find and far away from the crowds that you will find at other Siquijor tourist spots.

Quisol Mountain View is located at the top of the hill between Lazi and Larena. From San Juan, it is approximately a 40-minute drive to reach Quisol Mountain View. Here is the exact pin location on Google Maps.

There is no official parking lot or tourist desk at this location, so you will have to park your scooter on the side of the road and find the entry point which isn’t too hard to find. You will see a large sign with the words ‘Quisol Mountain View’ written on it and make-shift stairs cut into the land leading up to the viewpoint. See the image below for reference.

It takes around 5 minutes to walk to the top of the mountain and you’ll be rewarded with extensive views of Siquijor Island. Unfortunately, it was a bit cloudy on the day I visited, but on a nice clear day, you will be able to see the neighboring islands of Cebu, Negros and Bohol.

Get off the typical tourist trail and add the Quisol Mountain View to your list of things to do in Siquijor!

LAGAAN FALLS

Lagaan Falls is one of the best waterfalls in Siquijor and a must-visit during your visit! Swimming holes, rope swings, rock jumps and small caves are just some of the things you can expect to find at this epic Siquijor tourist spot!

Lagaan Falls is located in Lazi on the south coast of Siquijor Island. From the main tourist area of San Juan, it’s approximately a 30-minute drive to reach Lagaan Falls.

The Lagaan Falls entrance fee is 30 pesos and parking is free. At the entrance, local guides will offer to take you down to the falls but this is not necessary as the trail is clearly marked. However, I visited these falls on my own and decided to take a guide for good company and tipped him 50 pesos at the end. 

 

Microfibre Travel Towel: To pack a towel or not to pack a towel? A standard bathroom towel can take up a lot of space in your bag. Get your hands on a quick-dry Microfibre Travel Towel which is perfect for the beach, backpacking, camping and general traveling.

GET IT HERE

 

It takes around 15-minutes to walk along a dirt trail underneath a dense rainforest canopy to reach the first level of this Siquijor waterfall. Some of the features you will find here are a large swimming hole, rope swings, small caves, rock jumps and a wide set of falls. 

Don’t forget to follow the jungle trail upstream to where you will find small freshwater rock pools and natural jacuzzis. You could easily spend a few hours here jumping from pool to pool and swinging from the tree swings and not get bored.

The lush jungle that surrounds Lagaan Falls is what makes this place so tranquil and I highly recommend adding this spot to your list of things to see in Siquijor.

MAN-MADE FOREST SIQUIJOR

The Man-Made Forest in Siquijor is similar to the Bilar Man-Made Forest in Bohol, though on a smaller scale. A visit to this Siquijor tourist spot is worthy of a quick stop for a photo during your adventures around Siquijor Island.

The man-made forest can be found in Maria on the southeastern corner of Siquijor Island. From San Juan, it is approximately a 45-minute drive to reach this Siquijor tourist spot.

This enchanting stretch of road is around 2kms long and lined with beautiful mahogany trees between the towns of Minalulan and Liloan.

When you enter this parallel tunnel of trees, you’ll feel like you’ve just entered another realm. You will also notice the temperature drop drastically as you drive through the man-made forest Siquijor because the canopy above almost completely cuts out the sun.

I recommend stopping by the man-made forest in Siquijor on your way to Salagdoong Beach and cliff jump.

TALISAY BEACH

Talisay Beach Siquijor is not as crowded and popular as Paliton Beach which is why you should definitely find the time to visit this underrated Siquijor tourist spot.

Talisay Beach can be found between Lazi and Maria which is also in the same direction as Salagdoong Beach. There is no official entry point for Talisay Beach, you can just park your scooter on the side of the road and follow one of the dirt trails down to the shoreline.

Emerging out of the jungle trail, you’ll step foot on to a white sand and coral cove that is stunning, to say the least. Talisay Beach is best visited on high tide when the water comes right up to the palm-fringed shoreline, making it easier to go for a swim. On low tide, you will have to walk across the rocky reef to find deeper water for a refreshing dip.

Talisay Beach is also a renowned spot for snorkeling in Siquijor, so make sure to bring a mask and snorkel set with you down to the beach.

DAY TRIP TO APO ISLAND

Apo Island is a volcanic island located 30km off Siquijor’s southern coastline. Notorious for its dive sites and snorkeling, an Apo Island day trip is one of the top-rated things to do in Siquijor!

To book and Apo Island Tour you can pop into one of the many dive shops and resorts located along Paliton Beach in San Juan and organise your trip through them at least one day in advance. A barbeque lunch and cold refreshments are usually included with the Apo Island tour.

Apo Island is the longest lasting community lead marine protected area in the Philippines since 1986.

Apo Island is so aesthetically pleasing to the eyes that you won’t want to close them!  We anchored up the boat on the outer edge of the reef near the main beach port of Apo Island. Shortly after anchoring, we all jumped off the side of the boat and were snorkeling with turtles in no time!

The Apo Island tour is an entire day of snorkeling with sea turtles, fish, sea snakes and hundreds of colorful corals. There are also a few small mountain peaks on Apo Island that you can hike.
