HOW TO GET TO HERE

There’s a couple of options on how to get here and they are by scooter, habal-habal, tricycle, or on foot.

You can rent a scooter in Siquijor for as little as 250 pesos per day with a full tank of gas.

When you arrive in Siquijor by ferry, you’ll find that there are half a dozen scooter rental stores located at the Larena ferry terminal which is super convenient. You can pick up a set of wheels for the time you plan to spend on Siquijor Island.

If you are not confident driving a scooter, the other option is to hail down a tricycle or habal habal (motorbike taxi) along the main road in Larena to get a ride to San Juan.

The cost depends on how good your bartering skills are, though for a 40-minute drive from the port you can expect to pay around 500 pesos.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT PALITON BEACH

Paliton Beach faces west making it the perfect spot to watch the sunset on Siquijor Island with your mates!

There are a few oceanside cafes and beach bars dotted along the beach serving up cold brews and delicious meals. Most usually have happy hour between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm, so make sure to get there around this time if you want to score some cheap drinks.

There is no real party scene at Paliton Beach Siquijor, just chilled vibes and like-minded people to hang with.

If you visit the beach during the day it’s just as good. You can find a number of tree swings tied to bent palms that you can have a turn on and swing out over the water’s edge!

Apart from that, there isn’t a whole lot more to do on Paliton Beach other than go swimming in the ocean, lay in a hammock underneath the coconut palms, or read a book by the beach.

It really is one of the best beaches in Siquijor and I highly recommend adding Paliton Beach to your list of places to visit while on Siquijor Island.
