There are a number of ways on how to get to this enchanting island. What we did was the cheapest, I think!

From Cebu City (via the south bus)
  • From any point of Cebu, go to South Bus Terminal.
  • Ride a Ceres Bus (Recommended) that plies Bato via Lilo-an route.
  • You'll be in a 4 - hour ride; Fare is Php 175* 
  • Disembark at Lilo-an port.

From Cebu City (via pier 1)
  • Purchase tickets from Cokaliong Shipping
  • Ticket price Php 320 (economy)
  • Travel time 7-8 hours
  • The vessel will dock at Dumaguete Port

From Lilo-an Port
  • You need to get to Sibulan port.
  • You'll have 3 options on how to get to Sibulan port*
    • 1st: RORO / Cargo vessel (slow boat) - Fare is Php 70 - Travel Time: 30 mins
    • 2nd: Fast Craft - Fare is Php 62 - Travel time: 15 - 20 mins
    • 3rd: Motorized Outrigger / Pumpboat - Fare is Php 45 - Travel Time: 25 - 30 mins

From Sibulan Port
  • Tricycles are readily available on the port. They can take you to Dumaguete City for Php150 - 200. Way too costly for us.
  • If you're lucky enough, you can catch a passenger jeep (multicab) inside the port.
  • If there's none, you'll need to walk about 3 - 5 mins to get a jeepney ride.
  • Outside the port, there's a mini terminal for jeepneys*
    • To tiangge: Fare is Php 10
    • To Robinsons: Fare is Php 20
  • You can disembark on the tiangge, where you can hail a tricycle to Dumaguete port 
  • Or you can go to Robinsons mall (which we did) to freshen up, grab something to eat, and/or get anything you need. 
  • And from Robinsons, hail a tricycle to Dumaguete port for Php 8 / each*

From Dumaguete Port
  • There are several boats that can take you to Siquijor Island.
  • Fare varies depending on the type of vessel. Price range is Php 100 -170*
  • Slow boats' travel time is approximately 2 hours.
  • While the Fast Craft can take you to the island within 45mins to 1 hour.

From Siquijor Port
  • You can either take the multicab, motorcycle, or tricycle to your hotel/resort/homestay.

Tip: Try to get on the Multicab. This is the cheapest ride. For tricycle and motorcycle, they'll normally ask for Php150 - 250*

Now you're ready to take on to this mystical adventure. Have fun!
