Paliton Beach Siquijor – A Complete Guide To Visiting
What To Pack? We’ve put together our Ultimate Travel Packing List for every type of trip.
Paliton Beach is located on the West side of Siquijor, close to the town of San Juan, and is the most popular place for sunset on the island.
The best way to get around Siquijor is to rent scooters for around 350 Pesos per day and explore. If you’re not confident on scooters there are always locals hanging around on trikes, just make sure to barter the price before you ride.
Paliton Beach is easy to find when following google maps. If you have any confusion just head to Paliton Marine Sanctuary and turn right along the beach.
For those short on time, or that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.

The best time to visit the Philippines is between November and April, the island’s dry season.
Siquijor is good to visit anytime within these dates, as it’s so spaced out that it doesn’t seem to get too touristy.

The best sunset spot on the island!
Paliton Beach sits directly on the West Coast of Siquijor, giving the perfect view come sunset most evenings.
It’s only a small area of beach, however the clear water and soft sand make for a great afternoon relaxing under the overhanging palm trees.
Known as one of the most popular tourist destinations on the island, it can be easy to miss from the main street since there are no signs. However, the locals are all super friendly and happy to point you in the right direction.
If you arrive at the beach in the daytime, you’ll likely find a few people swimming, as well as tourists taking photo’s with the popular rope swings.
The water is quite shallow. So if you want to swim, head a bit further out with caution, and beware of the jellyfish.
We recommend laying a blanket down and grabbing a spot as early as possible, as come sundown the beach can get a little crowded depending on the season.
The Paliton Beach Sunsets
We headed down to Paliton Beach nearly every evening of our Siquijor trip at around 5pm.
The vibes are good, not your typical drunk tourist vibes, but more a relaxed scene – for those that really want to enjoy the atmosphere.
There are a handful of local stalls selling beers, soft drinks, crepes and snacks. And of course a few cute beach pups usually hanging around to play with.
For us Paliton Beach is the perfect place to end your days of exploring, and to make some lasting memories whilst watching the sun fade out behind the mountains in the background.
Overall, although it’s pretty small, don’t miss a trip to Paliton Beach off your Siquijor itinerary. As we think you’ll agree, this is one of the prettiest places to grab a coconut and relax on the island.
