APO ISLAND TRIP IN BANCA

Apo Island is one SM IMG_0424of the world’s best known community-organized marine sanctuaries, and as such it has been well documented by the global science community. The project was started in 1982, and led to the creation of hundreds of other marine sanctuaries in the Philippines. It is home to over 650 documented species of fish and estimated to have over 400 species of corals.

 

 

Visitors and tourists pay a fee to SM IMG_0208enter Apo Island and to snorkel or dive in the marine sanctuary; these fees are used to keep the sanctuary clean and in good condition.

The island is only 3 km in diameter and 120 m at its highest point, where a light house stands. There is a white stone beach, 250 m long, and an unusual vibrant coral reef.
