Swim like there’s no tomorrow!

Now that you finally know what to do in your Salagdoong Beach escapade, you have to make a budget without breaking the bank. 
  • For entrance fee, you need P25.
  • The food served in the restaurants cost P150 to P400.

The budget when you enter in Salagdoong Beach is quite thrifty but touring around the island of Siquijor is quite high-priced. If you want to tour around the island, especially the beautiful destinations of this place like Enchanted Balete Tree Spring, Cambugahay Falls, Butterfly Sanctuary, Cantabon Cave, Lazi Convent, and other more, you may rent a tricycle for P1000 than to spend P500 for single destination ride 

TRAVEL NOTES
  • Two days are enough to visit the popular places near the Salagdoong Beach. If your original plan is just going to the beach, change your plan on visiting other tourist spots to become more practical, and at the same time get the most of Siquijor Island. 
  • When you go for cliff diving, make sure that the ocean is in high tide to avoid any injury. You may jump far from the usual jumping spot to avoid hitting on the rock. You should ask the admin first about the precautions and instructions for cliff diving. 

Summer is coming! Looking for best spots for your vacation may be challenging and might cost you money. Philippines has so much to offer. It has lots of island you can visit, but Siquijor is one of a kind. Salagdoong Beach is a must visit when in Siquijor.

Salagdoong Beach will offer you great ways of spending your vacation. Spend your #SUMMER2018 right!


Here’s the detailed Siquijor Travel Guide on HOW TO GET THERE.

  4. This sounds like an amazing beach. I have heard good things about Philippines but the weather has to be right? What month did you go?
    I would like to try jumping of the cliff but would be so scared I would hit the rocks below; do they have someone around to tell you where to jump etc?

  6. Wow, reading your blog post made me excited to go back next month. I've been here on Siquijor Island 4 years ago and I was not the kind of traveler I'm at present, that's why I would love to go back. Anyway, thank you for touring us around Siquijor with your detailed post about the Island. I would definitely try the cliff jumping on my visit next month.

  12. In spite of having visited the Philippines several times, this is the first time I'm hearing of Siquijor island. This hidden gem seems like an absolute paradise with that pristine beach. I might stay away from cliff diving though, given my acrophobia :)
