5 Best Things To Do In Siquijor

5 Best Things To Do In Siquijor

Looking for the best things to do in Siquijor? Here’s a guide to the most adventurous island in the Philippines.

Getting Around Siquijor + Tips

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.

Depending on when you arrive, we recommend hitting off your Siquijor itinerary with some exploring. Tackling the two major waterfalls on the island is always a great adventure.

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.

1. 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.

2. Salagdoong Beach Cliff Jump

Salagdoong Beach is another place that’s high on the tick list when roaming the tourist spots in Siquijor.

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.

3. Lugnason Falls

Lugnason Falls is another beautiful waterfall. With stunning scenery leading up to it, there’s an easy 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.

4. Century Old Balete Tree

The Century Old 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!

Worthy of a quick stop, we realised why it’s one of the top tourist spots in Siquijor!

5. Paliton Beach

Paliton Beach is the most visited of the tourist spots in Siquijor. It’s the one that everyone heads to for sunset and we were lucky enough to catch some awesome ones!

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.

A great way to end your Siquijor tourist spots tour!

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. ??

What do you recommend more? To rent a scooter or a bike? Thanks, your post is very useful for my next trip :)
