Siquijor Island is on our horizon (literally!) and is a popular spot with its waterfalls, caves and white beaches. The island of Siquijor is famous for its folk healing traditions and has been unfairly characterized as the land of witchcraft and sorcery. One of the most intriguing and enigmatic islands in the Philippines, its healers are supposed to have special powers. Siquijor is also rumoured to be home to supernatural creatures, such as aswangs (vampires), agtas (giants), and engkantos (environmental spirits). But we can safely say that these stories are only classic myths made up a long time ago, to protect this island-province from the influx of intruders.
The mysterious and beautiful Siquijor is a big island with a lot to offer, which is why we have two separate itineraries. The Cultural itinerary will focus on old churches, museums and famous landmarks, whereas the Active itinerary will focus more on waterfalls, beaches and nature experiences. The itineraries can be discussed with the guide to fit your interests, to make the best out of your day trip.
The islands of Sumilon, Bohol, Cebu and Balicasag are a bit further but are excellent places to go by plane or overnight by one of many ferries that traffic the waters around Atmosphere.
