Siquijor Island

Siquijor Island

Siquijor Island is located in the southern Visayas region of the Philippines nine degrees north of the equator. The island is 340 km2 roughly half the size of Singapore and the size of Isle of Wight in the UK.  The population is just under 100,000 people which are mainly scattered in village and a couple of the smaller towns which are about than 15,000 – 20,000 inhabitants (Siquijor, Lazi, Larena).  The climate is a balmy 25 to 34 degrees all year but surprisingly dry as compared to other equatorial locations like Bali and Singapore. The dry season is September  to June.  The vegetation is semi-jungle but the infrastructure is surprisingly good with a perimeter 72km road equivalent to any road in Europe or North America and the 500km + secondary roads passable in a car and amazingly well suited to recreational mountain biking.
