Siquijor


The magical island of Siquijor (344 km2), is one of the Visayan Islands, something every cyclist should include in his or her itinerary. It is just off the southeast coast of Negros. Fishing is its economy’s mainstay and land use is primarily agricultural. In 1971 Siquijor became a province of its own instead of being part of Negros Oriental and therefore money flows directly from Manila into this little place.

A direct result of this is that the roads are in good condition or they are being worked on. Siquijor has relatively high mountains up to 577m., with superb trails offering splendid views over the ocean and the surrounding islands. Next to the great natural beauty as waterfalls, caves and beaches. Siquijor is said to be home of voodoo and other black magic stuff.

Arriving & Leaving

Entering Siquijor will be most easily at Larena, coming from Cebu via Tagbilaran, Bohol. Fastcrafts like Oceanjet leave Cebu a few times a day. Next to this are the way cheaper night boats, but check these out fi rst before spending your long night out on it. Other options that fi t very well into a multiple week tour is a trip to the south of Negros (via Cebu) and than crossing from Dumaguete to Siquijor town.
Arriving in these little port towns is like everywhere in the Philippines. When you arrive, people offering rides, taxis etc. Only in Siquijor’s case it’s just a little less and therefore far more relaxed. Going to the bigger resorts you can inquire ahead to have transportation waiting for you at the port.

Larena

Larena is nothing more than a quiet, sleepy town that wakes up a few times a day when a ship arrives. Taxis, tricycles and resort staff are picking people and materials and slowly after that life shifts back to a lower gear.
