How to get from Bohol to Siquijor?

Siquijor is one of the Philippines’ most magical islands, literally. It is home to a lot of local legends, and if you talk to the right people, you might even get to know some of them on your visit.

The island itself looks like a fairytale land, with all its golden beaches, turquoise waters, 3-tiered waterfalls, and the 400-year-old “enchanted” balete tree. And because it enjoys fewer tourists compared to other nearby islands, you can have a more intimate time with nature.

The only direct option when travelling the 130km distance from Bohol to Siquijor is by ferry. This ferry journey takes 1.5 hours and tickets start from 960 PHP ($19). Keep in mind that there is only one available ferry daily, and it departs from Tagbilaran City at 10:20.
