Go to the SOUTH bus terminal in Cebu City and look for the Ceres aircon bus
to Dumaguete (there are several each day) the bus the drives all the way down
Cebu Island collecting dropping off as it goes, finally you arrive at the
bottom of the island where you board a ferry across (the bus fare includes
the ferry) the bus carrys on into Dumaguete but stay for your boat to Siquijor,
in the port and there is the choice of slow vehicle ferry or catching the
fastcat if you are in time.
Bus Fare P290 - 7 hours
Ferry P260 - 40 minutes
I am almost reluctant to let too many people know about this place as it
is one of my favourite islands in Asia because it has not been developed,
keeps its original island charm - despite the arrival of tourists, has lots
to do around the island and has some fantastic beaches and diving.
What more could you ask for?
It is not a busy big island but developed and big enough to have a great time exploring, rent a motobike and cruise the sites, meet the locals, soak up the sun and never want to leave.
Good news is that there are quite a good number of options when it comes
to accommodation, bad news is that they are all quite small and book up quickly.
The main beach area is San Juan and Tubod Beach both in the same area, these offer good beach access to places to eat and drink and activity centres.
For those wanting to just dive there are several places at the north end of the island catering especially for divers and closer to the reefs.
For all places to stay:
