Ferry Terminal pick up and drop off
We are conveniently situated on the western side of the island by the national road right on the beach, only 15 minutes from Siquijor Town ferry terminal and 10 minutes from Siquijor new airport. Restaurants and dive shops are nearby. Easy access to the rest of the island.
We can arrange for a pick up from Siquijor Town ferry terminal, 15 minutes from the resort, for a fee. Please call us a day or two in advance on our mobile numbers (0908 1656 277; 0953 3017 464) to arrange pick up time and call again before boarding the ferry to Siquijor to reconfirm the time. It is also easy and often cheaper to catch a taxi or tricycle at the ferry terminal and the local drivers need the business to recover after the pandemic. Drop offs after check-out can be arranged at the resort.
Ferries and tickets
There are several ferries throughout the day between Dumaguete and Siquijor and ferries between Bohol/Tagbilaran and Siquijor. Ferry tickets are typically sold at the port on the day of travel. Oceanjet sells tickets online, via third party agents.
We offer transfer from/to Siquijor Airport, 10 minutes from the resort, for a fee. We can not do pick-ups from Dumaguete/Sibulan Airport on Negros Island. However, from Dumaguete Airport it is easy to get a taxi/tricycle to Dumaguete ferry terminal and from there take one of the many daily ferries to Siquijor.
Check-in and check-out times
Check-in from 3pm. Check-out before 11am. You can stay in the resort and leave luggage safely if you arrive earlier. Our Reception is open 7am-10pm. Outside these hours we have staff on duty to assist late check-ins and early check-outs.

Dive & snorkel
Siquijor diving and snorkeling is not yet well known but it is very, very good. Turtles are common and divers regularly see sharks, rays, and larger pelagics. Many corals are still in good condition and the area is great for macro-photography. There are dive shops nearby and we help book dive and snorkel tours.
Our beach is part of the longest white sand beach on Siquijor Island. It is not crowded and feels more like a private beach. The sunset is often spectacular. The July-November winds carry harmless seagrass on to the beach. We do our best to keep it clean. The beach is not great for swimming, but there are good swimming beaches nearby and around the island. At high tide you can take our free kayaks to the edge of the reef to swim and snorkel in clear water with some corals.
