Salagdoong Beach is on the eastern side of Siquijor island and is known for its popular cliff jumping platforms. If you’re not into cliff jumping don’t worry, there’s also bamboo rafts set up with hammocks and swings for you to relax on for the day. The beach is full of perfect white sand with clear water, kayaking and snorkeling options.
How to get to Salagdoong Beach
From the main area of the island, San Juan, it took 50 minutes on our scooter. The road through the mountains has many bends where its hard to see around the corner. Be sure to take extra care as there are many vans and jeepneys speeding by.
Best time to visit
We arrived at Salagdoong beach at 8:30am and found that the cliff jumps weren’t open yet as the tide was too low. The jumps open at 9am and you will have them to yourself until people start to turn up at around 10am.
Salagdoong Beach entrance fee
We paid 25 peso per person as well as 20 peso for scooter parking. If you’re interested in relaxing on the bamboo rafts these will cost you 300 peso for the whole day. You can also rent out a table for 200 peso.
Salagdoong Beach Activities
Salagdoong beach has something for everyone , whether you’re looking for a thrill or just want to relax. For people looking for a thrill there are two cliff jumping platforms with one being 25ft and the other 30ft. There is also a giant slide into the ocean but unfortunately this was out of order when we visited.
Once you have finished with the cliff jumping you can head over to the beach to lay in the sun and cool off in the blue water. You can hire snorkel gear to view the sea life or rent a clear kayak to explore more of what the area has to offer. To the left of the beach you will find bamboo rafts set up with hammocks and swings, as well as giant inflatable unicorns.
There is also a restaurant located just next to the beach, however if you’re looking for something cheap this probably isn’t the best place. There are accomodation options available at The Salagdoong Beach Resort if you would like to stay longer.
