General Remarks Site Siquijor is a splendid Island situated between Negros, Bohol and Mindanao. Its waters are clear and rich in hard corals. The Island has several tourist attractions such as a superb tropical but artificial forest, falls, caves and others. Coco Grove is the name of a resort with nice sand beach, along the south coast. We dived in front of it.
Facilities for Divers None, but dive boats from Dumaguete and even Mactan will visit. There are a couple of hotels along the south coast, style tropical paradise.
