“Magical” is how I would describe Siquijor.
I have heard about it long before because of the myths and legends usually attached to it, but never did I imagine that visiting the island just a ferry ride from Dumaguete would bring a different meaning to “magical” for me. Many perceive it to be filled with things supernatural, but instead, the place is a perfect vacation spot—–providing a welcome contrast of outdoor activities, water sports, peace, quiet, and relaxation. Plus, since it is not too crowded with tourists, you will definitely be able to find your own private nook, if you choose to just be one with nature.
