As mentioned in my previous blog, planning a trip to Siquijor, I prefer to stay and explore this province longer. But because of its close proximity to Dumaguete and Apo Island, I wouldn't want to visit these provinces as well. So initially, we will only stay overnight at Siquijor on our 1st day. Beside, I read in some blogs that you can tour the Siquijor in half to one day. But our plans changed and our itinerary was totally revamped when we set foot at Siquijor.
After a long ferry ride (about 1.5 hours) from Dumaguete to Siquijor port, it was the beauty and the long stretch beach at Coco Grove Beach Resort which easily captures our heart. The resort was inviting and seems very relaxing. What we love best is the uncrowded and peaceful ambiance of the resort. More reviews about this resort in my next blog.
We spent the whole afternoon of day 1 just lounging at the beach and exploring the resort.

Our Apo Island tour was spent on day 2. Travel time from Siquijor to Apo Island is about 1.5 to 2 hours. With this schedule, we no longer had the time to tour Siquijor. That's another reason to go back to this province. We had a few pictures though of some tourist spots which we took along the way. I wanted to explore more of Siquijor especially the falls and the beaches. Siquijor seems a lovely province isn't it?
