Experience the island life for a day and join this guided tour around the mystical island of Siquijor. Taking you from an old church and balete tree to the beautiful falls and beaches, this tour is perfect for adventure seekers looking to enjoy an off-the-beaten-path trip from Dumaguete.
In the morning, expect the tour vehicle to pick you up from anywhere in Dumaguete City and take you to the port. This is where you will board a ferry towards the island. Once you dock at the port of Siquijor, you will head to St. Francis of Assisi Church. This structure was built on February 1, 1783, and served as a hiding place from pirates. It is prominently known as the “Siquijor Church.”
You will then head to Paliton Beach. With its fine white sand and awe-inspiring view of Negros and Apo islands nearby, it makes for an ideal backdrop for your photos. After visiting the beach, you will be taken to the century-old balete tree, which locals believe to be enchanted and is said to be the oldest and biggest in Siquijor. Feel free to dip your feet in the natural spring at the foot of the tree as you enjoy the serene surroundings.
Afterward, the van will take you to Hapitanan then to Lazi Old Convent. Established in 1884 and completed in 1891, Lazi Convent is believed to be the oldest of its kind on the island. Inside the convent is the Siquijor Heritage Museum, where religious artifacts and historical pieces are preserved.
After your quick visit inside the museum, head next to Cambugahay Falls. Dubbed as the mystical waterfall of Siquijor, it boasts of its multi-layered falls with clean and warm water coming from natural springs, rainwater, and watersheds. Here, you can enjoy an unlimited swing jump.
Your tour will end in Salagdoong Beach. Another must-see beach on the island, Salagdoong Beach never fails to lure visitors from across the region. Two platforms are provided for cliff diving on the beach, so make sure to try it out. The beach’s crystalline water is also quite inviting for a nice swim.
