The joy of living on Siquijor is that there are plenty of white beaches to visit. Even when the Habagat winds blow the endless stream of rubbish and plastic soup on the Filipino shores there is always the other side of the island to go for a swim.
My favourite beach is Kagusuan Beach. It is a white, coral sand beach, with huge rocks in the water. The seagrass is a little further out in the ocean so there is a spacious white sand sea bottom to swim without stepping into a prickly sea urchin.
The rocks offer a great place to snorkel and enjoy marine life.
I walk with you over my favorite beach with the emerald sea and crystal clear waters, while Oda shows you how to open sea urchins and eat them while on the beach. (no need for a knife)
The entrance fee for Kagusuan Beach is an environmental fee of 30 pesos per person. You pay the fee after enlisting your name and place of residence to the guard.
In order to reach the beach, you have to climb down a concrete staircase. The beach itself offers lots of seclusive little bay areas where you can enjoy a beach day in privacy.
UPDATE: Kagusuan Beach was closed for public in 2019, due to change of ownership, I have no idea if it has reopened.
