I just got back from my vacation in The Philippines. I spent most of my time in the Siquijor province, but also went out to Apo Island, Dumaguete, and Manila.
Siquijor was amazing. I stayed at the Kiwi Dive Resort (highly recommend), which only has a handful of cottages, and even though there were other “resorts” nearby I was almost always alone on the beach.
It was surreal. No matter what time of day, I seemed to be the only person around.
In addition, there was a wonderful coral reef just a few meters out, so I went snorkeling several times a day.
It was a wonderful vacation. Siquijor has won my heart, and I’ll definitely be back.
These are just the first photos… many more are coming.
