Living on Siquijor Island in the Philippines

Living on Siquijor Island in the Philippines

Some call it the Healing Paradise and I believe it is. This Island holds all: it is the Philippines in small. It has white beaches, waterfalls, dive sites, waterfalls, mountains, cliffs, and endless jungles trails. It has been over a year ago since I arrived on Siquijor Island, and I’m probably here to stay. If all goes well. I love this island and it’s magic. And it has a healing touch to all those arriving here in a buzz from…

Kagusuan Beach Siquijor, Philippines

Kagusuan Beach Siquijor, Philippines

The joy of living on Siquijor is that there are plenty of white beaches to visit.

My favourite beach is Kagusuan Beach. It is white, coral sand beach, with huge rocks in the water. The seagrass is a little further out in the ocean so there is a…

Now the thingy comes with…

Visiting a Faith Healer on Siquijor Island

Visiting a Faith Healer on Siquijor Island

Siquijor is known for its healing powers. The Spanish already acknowledged that fact by building the largest convent in Asia in Lazi after noticing that every priest they send there was healed of all of his illnesses. And instead of building a usual 10-room monastery they build a building that could accommodate 134 people. Maybe by doing so that made them the country that invented medical holidays, long before this phenomenon occurred on a larger scale and was commercialised. Every…

Siquijor Island – St Francis Assisi Church

Siquijor Island – St Francis Assisi Church

Once you exit the port, at the end of the street you see a small Spanish church. Do not be fooled by the petite looks of it, behind the facade is a big church. The sober interior is in honor of the life philosophy of St Francis of Assisi who did not believe in wealth. The cruciform build church is part of a bell tower and convent, the last one is hidden in the school across the street. Upon request,…
