San Juan Beach

There are several beach resorts that dot the coastal areas of Siquijor. They serve as tranquil hideaways where the sky meets the sea. Beachfronts are covered with fine, white sand while rows of huts, cottages and other room accommodations are available for pic knickers and bathers.

We stayed overnight at the Coco Grove Beach Resort located in the Municipality of San Juan. For features of the resort please click here. The beachfront of the resort is truly amazing with its white sand and coral formation at the sea side. However, is you want to go swimming, you have to walk to a neighboring resort where the sand is finer and there are less rocks and stones at the shore.








And after swimming, you can walk through the thick plantations of coconut and coral valleys or you may want to explore the mini-caves located also at the sea side.

Unlike other beach resorts where fun beach activities are done, San Juan beach offers peace and solace and a good place for meditation.

There are no sports/recreational beach activities like what Boracay or Puerto Galera offers. This beach is ideal for lazy and leisurely walk, swimming, snorkeling or just plain wandering. Just the beach I like.

  1. Was able to visit that beach and wow! High end sya and I think expensive pero dahil na rin sa facilities I guess. It's a nice beach mas gusto ko rin yun ganun kesa sa crowd ng Boracay

  4. @ ferdz - ur right, medyo high end sya. what we did thou is to rent a vehicle outside the resort and to have our meals outside the resort too. but nevertheless, talagang maganda ficilities ng Cocogrove specially the two swimming pools na ginamit namin after a dip in the beach.

  10. the thing is, seryoso ako. i travel alone most of the time. pero if you and i are doing the same thing (like to swim, eat, photograph, shoot videos, caving, etc) then i guess we can travel together.

    this is not yet confirmed but i'm planning on visiting camiguin, iligan city, and cagayan de oro this december. or maybe palawan, hopefully. you know my blog and you can email me if you are interested.

    ps. do you travel with your family?
