Siquior island

 

A mystical and magical island that had once been part of the Philippines’ Negros Oriental, Siquijor

Island was then known as the Island of Fire. The island of Siquijor is reputed to have shamans, magic potions, witches, and sorcerers. Many Filipinos avoid staying overnight on the island due to superstitious beliefs.

Just an hour’s ride by boat from the City of Dumaguete, including Siquijor in a day trip from Dumaguete \is very easy. It is suggested that first time visitors hire the services of a local driver of multicabs and arrange for a guided tour around the island so as not to miss anything of interest.

The over a hundred kilometers of coastline of Siquijor are made up of beaches of white sands.

Located in the region of the Visayas, Siquijor is known as popular vacation spot for both locals and tourists alike because of the lure of its unspoiled coral reefs that are ideal for snorkeling and scuba diving.

The terrain on Siquijor is generally hilly and there are spectacular formations of white rock that have been formed by the fickle winds. Six very interesting caves were formed, Cantabon Cave being the most popular of all. Cantabon Cave is a wondrous cavern filled with stalagmites, stalactites, pools and waterfalls.
