Destination Reefs: Philippines (Apo Island, Mindoro)


Two sea turtles greet at Apo Reef.

Despite the similarity in their names, Apo Island and Apo Reefs (Mindoro) are two different locations but in fairly close proximity.  Apo Island is a tiny volcanic island just south of Cebu (seen in last week’s Destination Reefs installment).  What it lacks in land mass it makes up for in coral reef.  Steve De Neef shares two absolutely stunning videos of Apo Island.

Apo Reef at Mindoro lies north of Cebu and is also jaw-droppingly beautiful, as evidenced by our third video by Tony Exall.

The Destination Reefs video series showcases the diversity of coral reefs around the world.  Through these videos, Advanced Aquarist hopes we can all gain a greater appreciation of reef life beyond our glass boxes.
