Siquijor is the southern most province in the Visayan island of the Philippines. Siquijor Island is called "La Isla del Fuego" or Fire Island by the Spaniards who first visited this area in the 16th century. Siquijor offers an unpolluted atmosphere with peaceful ambiance. The serenity of the whole province makes it a perfect get-away. It is a haven for hikers, biker and nature lovers. A stretch of while sandy beaches cover all 102 kilometers of shoreline surrounding the island. It is an ideal place for swimming, snorkeling, and other water sports. Its splendid array of coral formation, reef, and other marine life is a must see for scuba divers. The western part of the island gives premier seats to view the most beautiful sunsets in the region.
