About The Island

Siquijor Island, Philippines

Green and natural, Siquijor Island is a place to escape to. The shores and reefs on Siquijor Island are stunning, while the waters are pristine and blue. If you find yourself needing to escape the busy cities in the Philippines, we recommend visiting this unique island.

On days off, you can explore the island by scooter, visit fresh water cascades and discover hidden beaches.

We also offer activities like snorkeling, kayaking and stand up paddle boarding right by our local reefs.

How To Get Here

We are located on the southwest part of Siquijor Island in Maite, San Juan. Whether you land in Siquijor town or Larena, we're only a short ride away.

A short ferry ride from Dumaguete City and you will arrive at the port of Siquijor. From there ask any tricycle driver to bring you to the Republika Beach Bar and Siquijor Divers Dive Shop.

You can also arrive directly from Cebu City or Tagbilaran City (Bohol) via ferry to the port of Larena. A little longer, but beautiful, tricycle ride of 30 minutes will bring you to us.
