Gorgeous, quiet, secluded, focus hard in the shallows and you will find!

So beautiful as others say. If you snorkel and patiently focus you will see Ambon scorpion fish, leaf fish, nudis and other hidden creatures plus a few banded sea kraits snakes... read more

So beautiful as others say. If you snorkel and patiently focus you will see Ambon scorpion fish, leaf fish, nudis and other hidden creatures plus a few banded sea kraits snakes and snake eels. You can take a public share tricycle 15 from San Juan or Siquijor to the old church on the main road and walk 15 mins.

Small beach with not many other visitors. Lot's of fishing boats on the shore. Just lay under the trees and relax a while.

The sand on Paliton was simply stunning. I was blinded even when wearing my sunglasses. We were there during the low tide, which made swimming impossible but the water was crystal clear and the scenery is just amazing. You probably need your own scooter to get there but I would rent one anyway while staying in Siquijor.

The beach was great! Allthough we heard that you should be aware of pickpocketters on the beach we luckily didn´t have any trouble. We were the only ones at the beach, water is clear and and the beach is very beautiful! Totally recommend. Ask directions from the people in Siquijor but if you come from Siquijor "city" turn right just... More

To reach this beach (and marine sanctuary) you must either have your own transportation or be prepared to walk quite far (maybe 2 km?) The beach itself is pure white sand, azure blue, crystal clear water, and lovely islands in the distance. Somehow overcome the logistics problems and visit!

Beautiful, secluded beach not far from the cluster of hotels and guesthouses in San Juan. Clean, white sand, some trees if you want shade, and clear water that is a good depth for swimming. There were no more than 10 other people on the beach during the afternoon that I was here. The best beach that I encountered on the... More

White sand, clear blue water, nice view, dont miss Paliton Beach. Take the small road at the right of the church and after 7-800 meters you will find it.

The beach is very hard to find and you have to pass a private property (just go ahead and ignore the sign). Once you reach the beach you'll be happy that you came because it's such a calm and beautiful place. The water is clear with a very soft underground.
