HOW TO GET TO SALAGDOONG BEACH RESORT

There are a couple of options when searching for how to get here and they are by scooter, habal-habal, or tricycle.

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 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 San Juan and get a ride to Salagdoong.

The cost depends on how good your bartering skills are, though for a 50-minute drive you can expect to pay around 200-300 pesos.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT SALAGDOONG BEACH

Salagdoong Beach boasts two beautiful coves lined with coconut palms and white sand shorelines. Just off the shore is a colorful reef that is great for snorkeling and swimming. 

The slippery slide and cliff jumping is the main attraction at this location and one for the thrill-seekers! Make sure you must visit during high tide to do these activities.

The slippery slide that visitors can try is located on top of the rock islet and twists down into the water. Unfortunately, it wasn’t functional on the day I visited so I didn’t get to give this one a try.

However, the cliff jumps were definitely up my alley! There are two diving boards here, one is around 5 meters and the other is 10 meters. Jumping from the top of the cliff into the turquoise waters below is one of the best things to do in Siquijor!

There is also a lifeguard on duty so if you need any advice or help to do the cliff jumping don’t hesitate to ask them.

I recommend spending around 1 or 2 hours at this location before continuing on to explore the rest of the Siquijor tourist spots.
