Discover Siquijor: The Island Province of Mystic Charm

Bathed in mystery and folklore, the Province of Siquijor is a captivating destination that lies in the Central Visayas region of the Philippines. Known for its scenic beauty, enchanting waterfalls, white sandy beaches, and coral reefs, Siquijor was once called “Isla del Fuego” (Island of Fire) by the Spanish colonizers because of the glow given off by myriad fireflies nestled in molave trees.

Siquijor’s Rich Cultural Tapestry

Siquijor’s culture is deeply interwoven with myths and legends, with traditional healers, known locally as “mangkukulam,” still practicing age-old rituals. The island’s mystique is an integral part of its identity, drawing visitors who are curious about its traditional healing methods, especially during the Holy Week when healers gather for a yearly festival.

Awe-Inspiring Natural Wonders

Cambugahay Falls: Perhaps Siquijor’s most famous natural attraction, Cambugahay Falls cascades over three tiers, creating swimming pools with clear, turquoise water. It’s a refreshing oasis where visitors can swing from a rope and plunge into the cool waters below.

Salagdoong Beach: This is a place for thrill-seekers. The beach is not only perfect for sunbathing and snorkeling but also known for its cliff diving spots, with platforms built into the rock for those wanting to jump into the deep blue sea.

Cantabon Cave: Adventurous souls can explore the depths of Cantabon Cave, a subterranean realm studded with stalactites and stalagmites. The cave’s interior is stunning, and guided tours provide the opportunity to delve into the heart of the island.

Historical Highlights

San Isidro Labrador Church and Convent: This is one of the oldest churches in the Philippines. The church exhibits old Spanish architecture and has been well-preserved, standing as a testament to the island’s rich history.

Lazi Church and Convent: Another historical edifice, the Lazi Convent is considered one of the largest and oldest convents in Asia, showcasing Filipino-Spanish colonial architecture.

Mystical Festivals and Events

Each town in Siquijor has its festivals, but the most magical of them all is the Healing Festival held during Holy Week. This event is a convergence of healing traditions where herbalists and healers share their mystical practices.
