Top 5 Things To Do In Siquijor Island

After visiting all the Siquijor tourist spots, this possibly became one of our favourite island in the Philippines. We break down just why we loved this island so much as well as the top five things to do in Siquijor Island during your stay.

Top 5 Things To Do In Siquijor Island

Firstly, the best option is simply to rent a bike and explore on Siquijor. This is the cheapest, most efficient way to get around all the Siquijor tourist spots.

We recommend staying in or around San Juan as it’s the most built up touristy area and close to all of the best Siquijor tourist spots! Anyway let’s get it started.

Siquijor Tourist Spots

Cambugahay Falls

The one and only Cambugahay Falls, the insta famous Siquijor tourist spot. This was our favourite place in Siquijor, purely because of the size of the pools and there are three different tiers…meaning multiple rope swings. Obviously many tourists head to this spot but it wasn’t as busy as we expected and we visited at around midday.

We paid 50 Pesos for unlimited swings on the rope and spent a good couple of hours just hanging out at Cambugahay Falls. The locals were super friendly and enthusiastic, welcoming us into the one of the top tourist spots in Siquijor.

Salagdoong Beach – Cliff Jump

Salagdoong Beach is another place that’s high on the tick list when roaming the Siquijor tourist spots. It’s a man made beach resort which costs 80 Pesos per person to enter but it’s well worth it for the famous cliff jump! There are two concrete diving boards, leading straight into the ocean, the highest one being 35ft. This was one of our favourite things to do in Siquijor Island.

As well as cliff jumping at Salagdoong Beach there is a similar slide into the ocean, the beach, restaurant and accommodation if you wish.

At Salagdoong Beach jumping into life like…

Lugnason Falls

This is another beautiful waterfall. With stunning scenery leading up to it, there’s a free parking spot when you arrive and from there you can head straight down the steps to the falls.

There are two jumping points and the falls are much more peaceful and less touristy than the previous. Hidden amongst the jungle it’s definitely worth stopping by if you’re passing it.

Old Enchanted Balete Tree

Old Enchanted Balete Tree is a 400 year old tree which locals believe is enchanted. Widely known for the fresh springs emerging from its base it’s also become a popular place for tourists to get their feet nibbled on by habitant fish!

Paliton Beach – Sunset

Paliton beach is the one that everyone heads to for sunset and we were lucky enough to catch an awesome one! It’s a beautiful little bay and not far from San Juan so if you’re staying in the area, you shouldn’t skip Paliton Beach on the way home after a long day at the falls.

Where To Eat In Siquijor

Monkey Business – One of the most happening and hipster places on the island. Good food, good people and good vibes.

The Big Belly Burger and Breakfast – For a cheap and cheerful burger and chips Big Belly right near the port is ideal! We even rented mopeds from next door for 250 Pesos per day.

Where To Stay In Siquijor

White Food Court – Sounds random, and it was, but we came across White Food Court on our moped late at night and they had private double rooms for only 500 Pesos per couple. The place was spotless and they couldn’t have been friendlier! The least we can do is mention them on the blog.

    Love your blog! My boyfriend and I have 6 nights left to play with (end of May).. would you suggest 3 days Bohol / 3 days Siquijor or 2 nights Bohol / 4 nights Siquijor? We can’t decide!

      Probably 3 in each! 😁 Siquijor is amazing and one of our favourites but it’s so small you can easily do it in 2/3 days. 🙌🏼
