Siquijor is an island province known for sorcery, witches, potions and other supernatural stuffs. But you can’t really say things about a certain place unless you’ve been there. I have been pretty excited about visiting this province so despite the weather ( it was raining all morning) I was still feeling upbeat.
After staying there for 1 day I had zero spiritual encounter, nevertheless I have seen the real beauty of Siquijor through its beautiful beaches, waterfalls, and of course the simple living of the locals. Just what as I expected Siquijor would be.
Here are my 3 favorite things about this mystic island:
- Experiencing fish spa under an old Balete Tree
Standing for more than 4 decades, this tree is usually attached with supernatural myths. Below the tree is a pool full of fishes ready to clean your feet.You can drop you donations on a box near the pool for the conservation of the place.
2. Swinging like Tarzan in Cambugahay Falls
I have seen waterfalls that are way beautiful than this one but its the swinging vine that makes it more special.
3. Beach bumming in Salagdoong
I love the beach! So clearly this will make the cut. Ha ha! Salagdoong Beach might be overrated but it is still one of the best beaches in Siquijor. I also love the road leading to the beach, here alone you will feel relaxed.
Although I really wanted to but I wasn’t able to hike Mt. Bandilaan and the various caves so I think it just gave me a reason to give this island another shot! He he
How about you? Have you been to Siquijor? What are your favorites?
