Apo Reef

Apo Reef is home to the second largest contiguous coral reef system which makes it an insta-worthy dive spot. It is teeming with a multitude of both solitary and schooling reef-dwelling fishes, as well as pelagics such as sharks, tunas, barracudas, etc. The adventurous diver will enjoy Apo Reef’s rocky shoals and long colorful walls that’s almost reminiscent of Tubbataha. It is also one of the best places to embark on an unforgettable wreck diving.
