From the end of the village, passing by the juice stand, you have to climb a lot of stairs, cross a lovely meadow before you reach the lighthouse. There is nothing up there, besides the building and some cows, so just enjoy the beautiful view!...More

OK you are on Apo Island for the diving and snorkelling, so the lighthouse is never going to be the number one thing on your list of things to do. But it's worth it if you have the time and want a nice walk. It...More
