Siquijor is a quiet island in the Philippines, once you get past the very annoying, very stubborn touts at the port. The supermarkets are roadside stands, gasoline is sold in glass liter Coca Cola bottles and the only ATM on the island, in the town of Larena, is temperamental at best. In short, the slow pace of life of Siquijor seemed like the perfect place to relax.
Wanting to explore the sea more we rented a 2-person kayak from The Bruce for 100 pisos ($2.25US) and hugged the cavernous coastline. The combination of calm, shallow water and excellent visibility made spotting marine life a breeze.
Above water, the rock formations were amazing sights. From cavernous alcoves to cliff faces, our camera was perpetually at the ready.
Our afternoon spent hugging the shoreline of Siquijor in a kayak was one of our most memorable during our 3-week visit in the Philippines. We highly recommend it!
