Hallo, mein Freund und ich kommen aus Deutschland und machen das erste Mal Urlaub auf den Philippinen. Wie werden in Cebu landen und von da aus wollen wir nach Bohol (Panglao&Adan, danach nach Siquijor, von da aus zurück nach Cebu und direkt weiter nach Coron, dann nach El Nido und dann wieder Cebu und die Heimreise antreten. Unser Fokus für diese Reise liegt auf viel Entspannung an den Stränden, Inselhopping und die Gegenden mit dem
Roller zu erkunden. Aber vor allem sind uns schöne Strände zum dort liegen, wichtig. Wir haben 21 Tage für unsere Reise. Ist die von mir vorgeschlagene Reiseroute dafür geeignet oder könnt ihr mir andere Stops empfehlen. Ich bin für alle Tipps dankbar.
That’s quite an adventure, Josi! You already have great destinations in your itinerary with amazing beaches. If you’re into snorkelling, consider visiting Apo Island near Dumaguete. This island is known for its diverse coral reefs and marine life, and you’ll even get to swim with turtles.
A day trip is enough to explore this small island. If you want to stay the night, there are very few accommodations with basic amenities.
To reach Apo Island, you can either hire a private boat from Siquijor or take the public ferry from Siquijor to Dumaguete. Apo Island is just a short boat ride from Malatapay Port near Dumaguete city.
After your Apo Island trip, you can head back to Cebu by bus + ferry from Dumaguete. We’ve shared the ferries available on the Siquijor to Cebu via Dumaguete section on our page. I hope you have a wonderful time in the Philippines!
