Adventure travelers, look no further! Siquijor, best known to locals as an island shrouded in mystery and the supernatural, also boasts of undisturbed beaches and virgin forests. During the colonial period, the Spaniards referred to Siquijor as Isla del Fuego (Island of Fire) because of the luminiscence produced by swarms of fireflies nestled among the foliage of molave trees. It will definitely be worth your while to discover what this quaint island has to offer! You'll be picked up from your hotel in Dumaguete in the morning to go to the pier and board a ferry bound for Siquijor Island. After a ~90-minute journey, your island exploration begins with a quick stop at the St. Francis de Assisi Bell Tower and the St Vincent Bell Tower before heading up a hill to Triad Cafe for lunch. From the cafe, you can enjoy a panoramic view of the town of Larena and the surrounding islands of Negros and Cebu. Next is a rolling tour of the coastal towns of Enrique Villanueva and Maria, where Salagdoong Beach and Cang-Isok House are located. Your guide will then bring you to the town of Lazi, where you can take a refreshing swim at the Cambugahay Falls and later visit a huge Balete Tree, which is said to be over 400 years old and is believed by the locals to be enchanted. Finally, you'll be brought back to the Siquijor pier for your ferry ride to Dumaguete.
