Think of arriving before sunset if you haven't planned any accommodation.
My review

Siquijor is a unique island, which can be covered in a few hours with a scooter, but which has numerous tourist interests which will make you stay on the island a long time. You'll find caves, waterfalls, mangroves, marine sanctuaries and heavenly beaches.

I love to travel the island's roads, sometimes winding, sometimes wide and straight; they reinforce the authentic and rustic look of the place. I very quickly felt at home in Siquijor. There are also little corners of paradise there, which house private access points to the sea in an idyllic environment.

The people are welcoming and kind, with the exception of some tricycle drivers, and a general feeling of safety reigns on the island.
For me, it's one of my favourite destinations on a trip to the Philippines.
