We found beautiful beaches in Siquijor and there are many things to do in Siquijor. Truly Siquijor island is one of the most beautiful places we have ever been so far. Siquijor Island is quiet and peaceful, plus there are some lovely serene coastal areas you can go to. Siquijor beaches are perfect for swimming alone, with loved ones, and friends.
If you are planning to visit Siquijor, one thing you should know is that during the Spanish colonial period, the island was called Isla Del Fuego (Island of Fire).
BEST TIME TO VISIT SIQUIJOR
The best time to visit beaches in Siquijor is around November to May as these are the driest months here. Siquijor’s low season falls on June so you might want to book your trip at this time to catch deals and promos from hotels.
Just be wary of weather disturbances since this is already the rainy season in the Philippines.
Beaches in Siquijor Island

1. PALITON BEACH
Paliton Beach is our favorite beach in Siquijor Island. Paliton Beach is very beautiful with stretches of white sand and crystal clear blue waters. You can definitely enjoy snorkeling here.

Nowdays Paliton Beach became so popular but still is not crowded and there is no entrance fee to go to Paliton Beach.
