Siquijor

Siquijor is a mysterious island province off the shores of Cebu in Central Visayas, Philippines. The legend behind Siquijor or Isla del Fuego given by the Spaniards deems, that the island rose from the sea during a thunderstorm conserving natural worldly powers. This legend continues that many healers, sorcerers, witches and other dark creatures flocked to this island to retrieve the magic from the mountains. Though the legend may have gone too far, visitors are often welcomed with cocktails and a deck chair to lounge on the beach. The island is filled with molave trees where fireflies swarm giving the island an eerie glow from afar. Visitors can participate in healing festivals, stroll through the Bandilaan Natural Park, make new friends at the butterfly sanctuary, and take a dip in the Cambugahay Falls in Lazi, Siquijor. The coral reefs that surrounds the island often attracts snorkelers and scuba divers to explore the depths of the island.
