The island of Siquijor has a reputation as a place of magic and sorcery which attracts visitors and also scares them away. Filipinos consider Siquijor to be mystical, full of witches and other supernatural phenomena.
The Spainiards that first spotted Siquijor in 1865 called it "Isla del Fuego" or “Island of Fire,” because so many fireflies gave the island an eerie glow.
It is also home to amazing white sand beaches. Resorts are plentiful.
Other sights to see while on Siquijor island are close to this cache:
