In the Philippines, when people talk about “Siquijor” they instinctively associate it with witchcraft, magic, folklore and mythical beings.
You see, most Filipinos grew up hearing frightening stories about this supposedly scary island and how it is home to many age-old tales of kulam, aswang and the infamous Balete tree.
Which may all be true many years back (according to our guide), but is now just a common misconception (or is it?) when it comes to describing what this tiny mystical Island has to offer.
Some may say that the stories often linked to the island are part of its curse, but I would like to think that it’s not. I’d say it’s part of this beautiful islands mystique and charm.
Because little does everyone know that this incredibly quaint island is home to some of the best-kept secrets in the Philippines.
