Maria is situated on the eastern side of Siquijor Island amid the towns of Enrique Villanueva and Lazi. The well paved national road that runs along eastern side will take you directly to town proper.

Please Refer to google map above

Our clothes were still wet as we leave the town of Lazi and as we were driving our way entering to the next town of Maria. We were like children then as we were frolicking ourselves in the waters of Cambugahay waterfall.

The road going to Maria town was free of difficulties, there was no traffic or road improvements, making our run a smooth one. I know very well where we are heading next this time so I was paying a close attention to a sign en route the national road directing us to this two secluded beach areas.
