Siquijor Island Attractions: What to do in Siquijor Island
"I had a visit at the butterfly garden which is run but a lovely guy and his family. Unfortunately I wasn't in the position to donate some money but I hope that more people will visit and have some cash with them to support this project which is still a working in progress."
"Like the other reviewers, we fell in love with Paliton Beach.
You pay a small amount for snorkelling. Ordinary bathing is free. I think you can buy cold drinks but take my advice and bring your own. There's a beautiful cove before you get to P Beach itself. The walk from the main road is a j..."oy, by the way.
We go to Siquijor every year and Paliton was one of our MUST DO IT places. Finally, this year, we did! Shameful, really, when I think how close to it we stay.

Siquijor's traditions aren't so far from ours.
By the way, the lack of 'facilities' is a good thing. Honestly. You won't need them for the short time you'll be there. God forbid any 'improvements' to the site.
