The Philippines is a country made up of over 7107 islands and each island
has its own unique character, so what about little Apo Island? It sits between
the Visayas and Mindanao off the coast of Dumaguete like a lost grandchild.
Boat is the only way to get to the island from the port of Malatapay which
is 25km south of Dumaguete. To get to Dumaguete you can take the ferry from
Cebu or flights from Manila or Cebu, then from the port or ariport you need
to get to Malatapay.
Trikes are the easiest way to get from Dumaguete to Malatapay and it is a set fee of P500 per trip (up to 4 people), these trikes will be waiting at the airport and ferry terminal when you exit.
You can organise private vehicle transfers to Malatapay costing around Php1400 per trip (1-5 people) or you can take the ceres bus from the bus terminal in Dumaguete (short walk from ferry trike ride from airport) the ceres bus goes every half an hour and costs Php30 per person and finally there is the Jeepney that have no set schedule and you can catch in Dumaguete centre for Php 20 per person.
