1. STAY ON THE BEACH
Most visitors who come to Siquijor Island stay on the west coast around San Juan, there’s a few hostels and restaurants, and a nice beach call Paliton. Honestly, I didn’t spend much time over there.
Instead, I opted for a little beach cottage on the east side, north of Larena - Casa de La Playa.
2. RENT A SCOOTER
I was told before my trip to The Philippines that renting a scooter was the best way to get around on most islands, and this was my first time experiencing it.
The simple freedom and local access made this one of my favorite aspects of the entire three month trip.
3. VISIT LAZI CHURCH
Built with sea stones and wood by Filipino artisans in 1884, was declared a National Cultural Treasure and nominated for the UNESCO World Heritage list.
4. ROPE SWING AT CAMUGAHAY FALLS
A short drive from Lazi Church is one of the most visited attractions on the island, Camugahay Calls.
You can get a guide at the entrance, and it’s nice to help the local economy, but it’s really not necessary.
5. VISIT LAZI
Next up, it’s over to the sleepy town of Lazi for lunch.
6. EAT PANDESAL
Simple dinner-roll-style bread that is served up in most bakeries around Siquijor Island.
7. VISIT CENTURY OLD BALETE TREE
Experience the very weird feeling of having your feet nibbled on by small fish at the base of a beautiful old Balete Tree.
8. CLIFF JUMP SALAGDOONG BEACH
The most popular attraction on Siquijor Island is the two diving boards at Salagdoong Beach.
9. PORTSIDE CAFE IN LARENA
Have a massive cheeseburger at the Portside Cafe in Larena. This is a good spot to eat if you are waiting for the ferry
10. SUNSET AT MT. BANDILAAN TOWER
Traverse through the small villages and up above the tree line to Mt. Bandilaan for sunset. The tower is not an easy thing to find so be sure to ask a local on your way up.
