Siquijor, the third smallest province in the Philippines, may be an underrated destination but it will surprise every visitor with what it has to offer.
From Dumaguete Airport, Siquijor, known as Isla del Fuego or Island of Fire, can be reached by ferry in an hour. It has one of the cleanest ports that you’ll ever see in the Philippines. Once you step down from the ferry, you’ll be mesmerized by clear turquoise waters of this island.
Pristine white sand beaches, emerald waterfalls, centuries-old balete tree, quaint churches, —these are just some of the sights that Siquijor has to offer.
