Apo Island is a tiny island located off the southern tip of Negros Oriental in the Philippines. Apo’s impressive rock formations, crystal clear water and tiny native style fishing boats make the island very Instagrammable. But for the real treasures, you have to take a peek under water.
Thanks to the protection of the area for more than 30 years, the marine life around Apo Island is thriving. Out of the 450 species of coral known to the Philippines, as many as 400 of them can be found around Apo Island! The diversity of the marine life makes Apo Island one of the best dive destinations in the world.
