Siquijor Island – The Mystic Island

Siquijor – Isla del Fuego – Island of Witches – The Mystic Island. The tropical paradise has many names. However, when discussing the mystique of the island, most locals and guests who have come and gone would definitely agree that the true mystique of the island lies somewhere between the green forrests, its beaches and the marine sanctuaries hiding below the surface of the ocean. There are a lot of white-sand beaches on the island as well as underwater sanctuaries that have not yet been touched by commercial institutions. The state of nature in the island is most mystical, as there are very few of those in the Philippines. Indeed, there is a whole lot more to the mystique of Siquijor than the purported witchcraft.
