Spot details

Apo island is a stunning location for scuba diving in the Philippines, often ranking among the best dive sites worldwide. The place is know for its amazing walls and drop-offs, and the abundance of marine life including turtles, sea snakes, schooling jacks and large pelagic species like manta rays. There are many great dives sites around the island, but Coconut (on the northern side) is regarded as one of the best. The sites are recommended for divers of all levels, although currents can be quite strong at some of the sites at Apo Island.

The island is located in the southeast part of Negros, at c. half an hour by boat from Dauin (which in turn is c. 45 minutes by bus from Dumaguete). There are several dive centers and dive resorts on Apo Island.
