Cang-iping Beach is another display of God’s countless beautiful creation and goodness. When he created our world, HE was pleased of what he saw. And I quote (Genesis 1:31-“And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.”)
The bustling resort accommodations in Siquijor is mostly found in San Juan town where the shoreline stretches out on white sandy beach. The island is blessed with natural attractions, beaches, caves, verdant mountains, rich in marine biodiversity.
Before reaching Poblacion San Juan, the white sand shoreline of the town actually starts at Cang-iping followed by Paliton. Both beaches are uncrowded and a scenic stretch of white sands.
How to get there:
From Siquijor town en route to San Juan taking provincial road prior to Paliton Beach, another way to the shore will take you to Cang-iping as shown in the map above.
As soon as I arrived, I was greeted by large fishing boats anchored at the side. A few steps from the parking area, the extension of white sands welcomes me and few visitors with seaweeds washed up ashore.
The group of visitors where preoccupied of taking selfies and pointing each others camera in any angle of the beach, they were delighted seeing the area. Then each of them were saying Hi’s as the camera rolls on a record. Upon hearing their talks, they are visitors from Manila.
I went further to the other end of the beach providing a picturesque natural scenery,who wouldn’t love to be on this place? Under coconut palms, a sunny skies, listening to the breeze, rustled through the sands and the waves lapping at the shore.
Then my attention was directed to a sign posted. It says ” No Trespassing,Private Property”. There is a distinctive structure nearby but I wasn’t sure if its exactly connected to what I’m thinking. The exterior color resembles that of a popular resort in San Juan.
Confirming my thought from a batch mate in college who lives close to Paliton Beach, she says, part of Cang-iping is actually owned by Coco Grove Resort. I was right. Paliton, Cang-iping and Cambusyo Beach were actually her grandparents property, and that, she is one of the successor.
I hope the silhouette of this area continue to exist if it’ll be developed into a future accommodation. When visiting Siquijor, make your way to Cang-iping before it gets too crowded, or how about spending the rest of the afternoon here as this is a perfect spot to watch the sunset.
