Apo Island hosts one of the world’s most famous marine sanctuaries and is therefore a top destination for scuba diving. The biodiversity of Apo Island is exceptional, as it shelters more than 600 species of fish and around 400 species of corals (most of the corals you can find in the Philippines can be found there), as well as turtles and other exotic marine life.
The Coconut Point Diving along the island is said to be one of the best dive sites in the world. Overall the visibility is excellent, but it can be low when seas are rough. As there is not much to do on the island, diving is the main activity for visitors and the island provides all the facilities, with a couple of dive resorts and dive shops, offering scuba courses and boat trips. The island is accessible by boat from the mainland leaving from Dumaguete for example, or from Siquijor Island. Note that there is an entrance fee to the Marine Park, which ensures a clean and beautiful site.
