Activities & Sights
Siquijor has much to offer. Apart from being known as the ‘healing island’ and famous for its faith healers, there is world class diving and snorkelling, waterfalls, caves, old churches and the largest convent in Southeast Asia (in Lazi), beautiful beaches and more. The road network is good and it is easy to get around on motorbike or organise an island tour by car. Not yet too busy with tourists the island still retains a laid back, local feeling. And the people of Siquijor are naturally very hospitable, warm and great hosts.
Snorkeling & Diving
The late afternoon sunset at White Villas is often spectacular, with colours and atmosphere changing throughout the year. Great photo opportunities if you are into this type of photography! Or just sit on the beach and take it all in, while enjoying a cold drink.
Up in the hills of Siquijor we are developing two organic farms. On one farm we have planted several hundred local hardwood trees as we support conservation and mixed farming. We have also planted mango, cacao and several other types of fruits. The other farm has more than 50 mature mango trees as well as bananas, pine apple, dragon fruit, bamboo, vegetables, taro, poultry, livestock, and much more. Two local farmers are currently looking after the farms. We are not yet doing organised tours, but you are more than welcome to visit. The nearest farm is a good half our walk from White Villas and the other a 20–minute drive. Our resort staff can help arrange trips.
