Sit with an old tree

This balete tree at least does not intimidate too much as many tourists drop by. The fish spa is also a wonderful experience and I did not have to pay too much.

The balete itself is a lush and large tree. I can see why they call it enchanted. It's beautiful and provides the area much shade under its widespread canopy. Under the tree, there's a free fish spa (donations are accepted, too). Just watch out for the big one - it looks like it can swallow your toe whole. haha. The... More

Quiet place to enjoy nature. Locals are friendly. Fish spa experience is the attraction here at only P5. Be amazed at the century-old balete tree. Souvenir shops is also located on the site. One could stay here at an hour for the fish spa.

It's a nice stop over to rest your feet, dip in a cold water, feel the fresh blow of the wind, laugh and enjoy the tingling bites of little fishes. You love beaches and nature? Siquijor is the island you need. Relaxing fresh nature, and nice people too. :)

Free fish spa. Just a 5php entrance fee and donation if you want :) big fish however unlike those in malls or anywhere with small fish for fish spa. But worth it :)

Do stop here when you are driving around on a rented motorbike and relax with the free fish spa and just marvel at the tremendous tree in front of you. Very peaceful.

Nice spot to stop and dip your feet in for a relaxing mini massage. Clean and not too busy. Lovely and shady.

Place is well maintained by the locals. With a very minimal fee, you get to enjoy the entire place and soak your feet in a cold spring water. Bonus: fish spa! Though I didn't get to try it.

The tree is mostly enchanted by the gasoline smell of all the cars/bikes that stop there. The pool is filled with fish that, besides the tingling, don't leave your feet in any notable improved skin state. The tree is beautiful, but not exceptional. It's 10 peso BTW. OK stop but not worth a special trip.
