On Top Of The World: Siquijor

The island of Siquijor is relatively small province of only six towns but it holds a lot of surprises that would erase your first impression of the island. Beyond the supernatural stories, Siquijor lives to its name the Mystical Island because of the enchantment from its natural landscapes and seascapes. You can bike around and hop on and hop off between old churches, waterfalls, marine sanctuaries and springs. Most of the activities here are for free and cheap.

The original plan is to snorkel in Tubod Marine Sanctuary near the popular Coco Grove Beach Resort. However the waves are as high and as powerful as the waves for intermediate surfing due to habagat or the southwest monsoon winds. So from San Juan, we went to the next town of Siquijor where the waves are relatively pacific. And there is the Caticugan Marine Sanctuary waiting for us. The calmness and clarity of the water while the starfishes scattered welcoming us add excitement.

We enjoyed the activity greeting protected creatures of Caticugan. We saw colorful and camera-loving fishes, sophisticated corals and even sea snakes (or are they just eels). Just look at those creatures in these funny comic strips. We didn’t notice that we actually took a long time in those Siquijor waters. But we had to catch the only fast craft ride back to Dumaguete in the sea port few minutes away from the sanctuary. So we left the sanctuary but with high hopes. Caticugan Marine Sanctuary is just a preview of the marine biodiversity of the island. We would see more if we scuba dive next.
