(4.2/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Experience the fish foot spa at Old Enchanted Balete Tree--a 400-year-old tree believed to be the oldest and largest in the province. Its eerie aspect features prominently in Philippine folklore. A spring originates from its massive roots, flowing into a pool where you can dip your feet and let the tiny fish nibble away the dead skin. Vendors on site sell food and water, as well as souvenirs. Put Old Enchanted Balete Tree into our Siquijor Island trip generator and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • I'm sure it's a pleasant stopover on your journey. The tree is really huge and very beautiful. Under the tree is the pool, where you can leave okousat feet from the local fish. If you are on Siquijoru, so I pull over.

  • The tree is ominously beautiful. It's centuries old! The way the fishes munch on your feet's dead skin cells is orgasmic! Visit fee is Php 5.00 each. You can also eat/drink for only Php 30.00. A Souvenir shop is by the fish spa area, and you can opt to buy expensive dry goodies.
  • So enchated..cool plce
  • Enchanting tree and the fish massage on it's small river is very relaxing.
  • When in siquijor you must see the balete tree it is pretty impressive to see in this time and age a well preserve tree that's around 400 years old as what some locals of the place said. And upon seeing the tree u can enjoy unlimited fish spa time that would only cost u minimum of 5 pesos per person.
  • Nice fish spa and an old tree
