SIQUIJOR BEACHES AT A GLANCE

The island of Siquijor has remained to be an off-the-beaten path due to its location despite its growing popularity these recent years which has helped keep the pristine state of its white sand beaches. Hence, when one goes out of the island, it’s a natural thing to talk about not only the mystical feeling that the island gives at night time, but as well as the bewitching sense that its best beaches bring about especially during sunset.

SALAGDOONG BEACH

Salagdoong Beach

Salagdoong beach is popular among tourists for its cliff diving adventure. Choose either the 20-feet or the other 35-feet high cliff to jump on. Come by early in the morning to avoid the crowd. The place is small and can only accommodate a manageable number of tourists. Entrance fee is P75.

KAGUSUAN BEACH

Kagusuan Beach
  • Description: Pebbles and sand fill its shoreline in a comfortably ivory glow – such is the beauty of Kagusuan beach. It’s another unspoiled beach in Siquijor that is beyond the ripping hands of commercialization. While here, expect nothing but a pure relaxation of a tropical paradise. Note: As of this writing, the beach is closed for non-locals for security reasons.)
  • Location: Maria, Siquijor
  • How to get there: The beach is far from the main road. The challenge is that there is no signage that will guide solo travelers to Kagusuan. The best way is to head out to Lazi town proper and hire a tricycle driver to get there.
