1st Day: Arrival and Chilling by the Beach

I arrived at Glamping Siquijor By the Beach and was very pleased about how my room was a stone's throw away from the beach. I was literally in front of it, actually. I decided to chill for the rest of the afternoon at the beach which happened to be my front yard. It's a really calm place... Amazing!

The sunsets were breathtaking.

2nd Day: Exploring Siquijor's Most Famous Sites


Without a driving license, getting around Siquijor is more complicated. But no worries, the tricycles are your friends!  

Century Old Balete Tree

Let's go to the Century Old Balete Tree. At its roots, a source of water coming directly from the tree. People come specially to get their feet clean for free by the fish present in front of the tree

Next Stop: Cambugahay Falls

After this, we went to the famous Cambugahay falls.

The water is really blue in this place and it was clear that people enjoyed their experience in the place a lot! I know I did!

What an experience! Rope jumping into the falls!

Here I am, enjoying myself too much!

I was set to have an early morning meet-up at the Coco Grove Beach Resort for the incredible experience of the snorkeling with turtles in Apo island!

4th Day: The Last Day


Early in the morning, in front of  my stay, Glamping Siquijor by the Beach, you can see boatmen fetching sea urchins to sell at the fresh seafood market while the children have fun in the sea.
