Activities & Sights
Siquijor has lots to offer: world class diving and snorkelling, waterfalls, caves, butterfly farm, marine life museum, beautiful beaches, old churches, the largest convent in Southeast Asia (in Lazi) with a new museum, and more. Known as the ‘healing island’ Siquijor is famous for its faith healers. We organise island tours by car or tricycle and rent out motorbikes. The road network is good and it is easy to get around. Not yet too busy with tourists the island still retains a charming, 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.
