That is a little over the top, but it gets close. They say they keep it hidden from the tourists when you are on an island tour, I guess that is part of the 'feel good, feel special' the tour guides want to give you. Because they take every tourist there and at some days it is very crowded. Good... More

Some construction by a certain resort is on its way, but Paliton Beach is definitely one of the best beaches in the island! I had the pleasure of having the whole beach all to myself! Will definitely go back

Went here at lunch and there was only 1 couple at the beqch. Place felt like your own private beach with fine sand and patches of coconut trees. Water was crystal clear! Hear from our tricycle driver that its being developed but i hope it somehow they could retain the natural beauty of it!

Paliton beach is a beautiful shoreline with very amazing powdery sands. Paliton beach is yet to be discovered. Few people are visiting the place yet.

Paliton beach was a bit confusing but great. We took the exit from the circumferential road at the church in paliton as described in the lonely planet. At the end of the road, you find a house with a sign: paliton beach marine sanctuary. The house is beautifully decorated with wood and thousands of seashells. In front of the house... More

There is one small resort on this small beach. Nice powdery sand and you will probably have the whole place to yourself. This is the place where we loved to watch the sunset in peace.

If you are looking for the perfect secluded white sand beach fringed by palm trees in Siquijor then head to Paliton. To get to the beach walk down a small side road of the main circumferential road for ten minutes. You need to cut across what looks like private property near the beach. The beach is pure white and gloriously... More

The beach is isolated and very rustic. The sand is powdery white, the water very clear, and you can relax all day long here. There's no cottage in view. No restrooms, however. But it's like being stranded in an island and you can enjoy paradise all to yourself, in its raw form and beauty. There's no entrance fee, too. It's... More
