This article includes a list of Siquijor Resorts and Hotels; pieces Information on How to get to the Island from various places; and List of Tourist Spots. Moreover, we also added relevant links to various destinations as well as Tour Packages available in the area.
Salagdoong Beach Resort
Siquijor Island also known as the Mystical Island is an ideal place for tourists and vacationists. The serene island is blessed with scenic beauty, archaic churches, and natural attractions. The minute I landed at the port of the place, I already fell in love with its unspoiled environment and the warm hospitality of its people.
You can experience a coastal tour of the island in just one daytime. Legend tells that the island rose from the ocean during a tremendous thunderstorm cited as evidence is fossils and shells which can even be found in Mount Bandila-an, island’s highest point. While the coastline is mostly white sand beaches, the interior of the island is mountainous.
The whole island was declared a marine reserve and tourist zone in 1978 by virtue of Proclamation No. 1810. No wonder why many nature lovers and adventurers were enticed to explore its numerous caves, springs, and rivers, and to climb up Mount Bandilaan, the highest peak at the center of the island. For tourists who simply want to lay back and relax like me, the island provides a long stretch of beautiful white-sand beaches.

HOW TO GET TO SIQUIJOR ISLAND, PHILIPPINES
There are two ferry terminals on the westward side of the island: town and Larena. At the end of the pier of each, you’ll find some touts tricycles to bring you to your hotel or resorts.
There are several passenger boats daily from Dumaguete to Siquijor Island town and some larger Roro boats There are also several boats a week between Tagbilaran on Bohol and Larena. I advise you get hold of the Roro because it’s more stable on rough seas.

Getting around Siquijor via Tricycle [ Siquijor island Tourist Spots + Travel Guide + Resorts/ Hotel ]
Rent a Motorbike. It is possible to rent a motorbike for 280- 350PHP/day (gas not included) from either pier or in some shops near hotels. Before hiring, check if helmets are included and if the price per day means 24 hours or i.e. 8 AM to 6 PM (some resorts require you to return the motorbike before sunset). You don’t need to leave your passport with the tenant, they accept even just an Identification Card.
Hire a tricycle. The most popular and budget-friendly way of transit around the island is the tricycle. Tricycles are now using a tariff system with fixed prices for tourists. They appeared much more expensive than on other islands. But what is good about this fixed tariff is that any tourist won’t feel that they were taken advantage of the fare.
Start on a Jeepney. While it would take time for you to get to your destination, jeepneys (not very frequent) run between the principal towns along the island.
Van Rentals. For bigger groups, van rentals are available right at the seaports. They also have a fixed tariff for this.

HAPPY TRIP TIPS
- Summer is the best time to visit the island, so don’t forget to bring your sunglasses, sunscreen, and other skin protection.
- While there were no mosquitos during my visit, it would still be best to bring some insect repellant lotion.
- The place doesn’t have much to eat especially if you are doing a tour. So It would be best to slip some snack items in your bag.
- Bring bottled water when traveling around the island. I have a very sensitive stomach so I don’t drink water just anywhere when I travel.
- Bring your medicine kit.
- Cellular phones are essential when traveling especially when there are emergencies. So don’t forget to bring some power banks.
- Travel light, remember the mode of transportation in Siquijor island is by Tricycle.
- If you wish to navigate the Island by yourself using a rented motorbike, make sure that you inform the hotel of your itinerary.
