Discover the mangrove

You can sleep in a treehouse in the mangrove or have a meal/drink on a bungalow on stilts over the sea. Beautiful clear water at high tide.

Nice view!!! But it is only a short walk. We enjoyed seeing mangroves and to get information on that. It's right beside the main road so it worth the stop!

This is a beautiful place for sightseeing. The place is made of a complex of stilt pathways, with Nipa Huts where I think you could stay for a fee. This is a nice place to cap off your Siquijor tour, going in the late afternoon. The view is very serene, you can definitely have the view of the sea here.... More

For me, Guiwanon is a nice place to hold a live-in seminar or training. It is also a nice place to stay overnight and experience the rustic life. I really appreciate the efforts of the local community to conserve the coastal area by planting mangroves. I hope many people can visit Guiwanon and replicate this project elsewhere.

You will have to walk along wooden bridges and pass by huts and mangroves. The place will bring out the photographer in you. It has this crystal clear pond but I don’t think they let people swim there.

great place for photos! the houses and the pathways were very interesting. it's really a complex of houses on stilts and their pathways, not only one. you walk along these pathways from the entrance towards the biggest house at the end.

We dropped by the spring park on the way to the port on our last day. It's a mangrove park with bamboo bridges and tree houses. You can actually stay in one of the tree houses! The view of the ocean is lovely as you walk along the bamboo bridges. The spring is not big but is curiously situated in... More

This is the place where you could appreciate the interconnected ness of flora and fauna....mangroves are abundant and so with the sea grasses, soft corals and algae. The place is still undisturbed and so with the seabed.

Good for a quick stop to take pictures and see the mangroves. The water is also very blue and very clear (like the rest of the water spots around Siquijor).

Guiwanon Spring Park is sometimes called Luyang Spring Park (it is part of Brgy. Luyang). When I asked why it was called a spring park, the organization running the place pointed out that there were several springs spouting water beneath its footbridges. It's not obvious because those springs are surrounded by sea so that the water in the area is... More
