Spontaneously at Apo Island


When April comes, one island is surely waiting for me- Apo Island. I have always love to come back here every summer and get my tan. This island brings a lot of fun memories. I would never get tired of always going back each year. I must also tell you that this post is kinda nostalgic because Apo Island is by the way my first post. You can check it out here. Let me share this year's escape- I must say.


Me and my pretty friend actually have no plans of being in this paradise this year, but we have ATO or (Authorize Time-Off) at around 7:15 am. The inner vixen in us is saying we really need to go and be back later in the afternoon. Well, let's go.

Fare: P100 and P2 for the terminal fee.
It is their island fiesta. So, free food, stay, and fun of course. Viva Sr. San Vicente Ferrer!
Apo Island is geographically located on the southeastern side of Negros. 7 kilometers away from the town of Zamboangita, and 25 kilometers away from the the main city of Dumaguete. This island can be reached by a boat ride approximately 30 minutes from Malatapay, Zamboangita. Apo Island is one of the best diving area in the Philippines. This island has been blessed with beyond rich marine sanctuary.

My beach bum friends.
The small island souvenir shop. I have been gaga over magnets lately. So, I got my self one and I'm good to go.
I must tell you all guys that this island has no water supply. For drinking water the locals needs to transport gallons and gallons of water from the mainland. They have schedule power on that is from 5:00 PM to 3:00 AM. So power savers are really helpful.

I would like to credit Phioxee for taking these photos. I swear I'm having some lone moments. Surely, true friends sees you in ways others cannot. I love the photos indai..mwah!
Apo Island also has a turtle area where you can actually swim with the sea turtles or Pawikan we call it. You can as well trek the Rockpoint View Deck and the lighthouse or the Parola. I have already trekked the Parola, I am now trying out the Rockpoint View Deck.

My muscles ached, but it was all worth it!
The rest of the trip was a never ending beach trippin' and eating! I think I gained a few pounds I guess? Well, never mind it. I just want to live free and enjoy every thing that comes along my way.


The sun is making everyone a bit drowsy.
My best travel buds. Phioxee- the body beauty, the pretty hot Val, and Me- just me...hehe
We stayed for the night. We were not able to go home as scheduled because guess what? I didn't go on absent just so you know, my Paid Time Off or PTO was approved later that afternoon. I guess my heavy bag is all worth the carry...hahaha I would also like to shout out my Happy Birthday greeting to my beloved best bud Phioxee. I lurv you always gurl. I would love to spend every travel with you. Cheers!


This is one of my memorable trip because my phone go stolen here. I did some mobile tracking, but I realize it was not worth the fight. I have came to this point in my life where acquiring material things is gratifying, but never to depend my happiness on it. I love Apo Island and I'd always do. Anyway, unplanned vacation is always the best. Well, brace your self chicas because it's summer and I am on for beach post all summer. Till our next trip...xoxo!

    1. Maganda sana kung yung local government nila ay maglagay ng undersea pipes para sa tubig ng Apo Island. Kawawa naman ang mga taga-isla. Taghirap sa tubig!

  23. ganda naman ng Apo Island. parang yung beach is mabato pero hindi yung rough stones kundi yung makikinis na parang coral. parang sa Pucca beach. 2 yrs na kong di nakakarating sa dagat tuwing summer. bawi kami next year pag malaki laki na si Mik. :)

  25. I am jealous. I miss the island life (but not the same as Apo island ha ---no water and scheduled power lang). ...but I don't like getting a tan and I hate wearing bikinis. I always feel exposed when wearing one. :)
