The scuba diving around Apo Island is up there with the very best. Yes, that tiny little bump you can see from your Siquijor sunset is an incredibly special place to visit, and it certainly packs a punch.
Famed for its outstanding coral and thriving sea life, Apo Island is a must-visit for anybody scuba diving on their Filipino trip. Even if you’ve never tried it before, the diving (and even the snorkelling) on Apo Island is too good to ignore.
Although accommodation is limited, wifi is non-existent, electricity barely runs, and provisions are scarce, this little lump of land is a cracker. The views, the sunsets and the peace that come with island life were a highlight for us. And we haven’t even mentioned the hundreds of turtles you’re 100% guaranteed to see.
