Siquijor

Known as the most mystical island in the Philippines, Siquijor is famous for all sorts of stories from supernatural occurrences, to witches, to even ghost sightings. Siquijor, despite its infamous reputation is still home to the most beautiful beaches not only in Visayas, but the entire Philippines. Many tourists continue to visit this beautiful municipality in the hopes of experiencing something supernatural. There is an appeal to something we can’t explain, right?

Mystery and adventure, what more can you ask for? Siquijor is blessed with turquoise waters and white sands. Relatively still uncharted, it makes for a perfect getaway with your friends.

Your first stop should be the beach. Salagdoong Beach is the perfect place to be to get a tan or dip in the cool water. With a view like that, you can’t help but jump right in as soon as you see the place. Other than that, Siquijor is also home to the Capilay Spring which serves as a public pool for Siquijor locals, the gorgeous Cambugahay Falls, and the Tulapos Marine Sanctuary.

And if you want to get a taste of what Siquijor’s famous for, go to the Enchanted Balete Tree and Fish Spa. And while you soak your feet and let the fish get rid of the dead skin, marvel at the huge Balete tree, which is believed to be home to several enchanted spirits and creatures.

If you ever end up on the island during Holy Week, be sure to catch the Faith Healing Festival where most of the faith healers in Siquijor convene and create their different concoctions and heal people with ailments. It’s a sight to behold and whether you believe them or not, they seem pretty convincing.

If you want the thrill of adrenaline and the excitement of mystery, Siquijor is the place for you.
