It is a public area. White sand beach reminiscent of Boracay island. lots of coconut trees and boat parked nearby.

I was in awe at the beauty of the sea. It was like a mirror -- it was that peaceful. The sunset and the stillness of the place made the whole experience rejuvenating. I went by myself, but my awesome tour guide / trike driver / photographer / friend, Kuya Allan captured every moment on my cam and iphone. He's... More

My wife and I walked to this beach from our nearby resort. We paid nothing as we only wanted to swim and snorkel a little near the beach. While there are not a lot of fish and things to see near the beach I did see some large star fish, some beautiful urchins I have not seen before, and some... More

Our tricycle driver suggested this as a side trip on our way back from the Siquijor post office. We bumped down a short road for a couple of minutes and stopped at the "Private Property" sign. Our driver assured us it was OK, so we made our way by a couple of barking dogs and a curious rooster to a... More

A lovely beach. Very secluded with just one or two people on the whole length of it when we visited. There is a small road heading down to this beach from the main ring road just by the church. It's not particularly well signed so you may have to ask someone. At the end of track is a gate saying... More

Like the other reviewers, we fell in love with Paliton Beach. You pay a small amount for snorkelling. Ordinary bathing is free. I think you can buy cold drinks but take my advice and bring your own. There's a beautiful cove before you get to P Beach itself. The walk from the main road is a joy, by the way.... More

Beautiful secluded spot a bit off from the main road (accessible by motorbike or walking) but construction of a "marine sanctuary" (likely planned to be an attraction) has just begun here so expect more tourists in the near future.

Access to this beach is via a 1.5 to 2 kilometre dirt track off Siquijor Island's circumferential road ('National Highway'). I then had to scramble down a small cliff - so take your reef shoes or thongs. The beach is a beautiful expanse of white sand, and the water attractive although there was some seaweed. I did not see any... More
