Have you ever walked around your own province as if you were a tourist?

— Well, that’s what happened to me when I went back to Siquijor, I felt the urge to explore and know more about my hometown which is known by many as “the mystic island”.

And as I started exploring I realized how much there was to learn about my own province and I could say “I love my own hometown”. I am proud to say that I am always a province girl at heart.  Spending one week in the Isla gives me the opportunity of seeing it through in a different angle.

Tentenen so here are the awesome places I’ve visited! ?

1. Paliton Beach: Paliton San Juan Siquijor (Public Beach)

You can easily locate the place since there is a poster or shall I say sign at the side of the road.
