Getting to Siquijor
The days of having to travel in various vehicles to get from Cebu to Siquijor are long gone. This route typically requires numerous connections and extensive travel times. Visitors will be happy to learn that there are now more practical transit options, such as a direct ferry!
Currently, there are no commercial direct flights to Siquijor. The usual procedure for visitors is to fly into Cebu, Dumaguete, or Bohol and then take a ferry to the island.
To get to Liloan Port or Dumaguete, take a bus from the South Bus Terminal in Cebu City. Both locations have access to Siquijor ferry services. You will be on the road for 6–8 hours if you use one of these bus or ferry transfers. These alternatives have the most expensive fares but the longest travel times.
As an alternative, travelers can travel to Siquijor on two ferries. The initial boat departs from the pier in Cebu City for Tagbilaran, Bohol. You can board a different ferry to travel from Bohol to Siquijor.
