Baluarte

Along the western coast of Apo Island, Baluarte gives away the distinct evidence of it’s geological origins. An interesting phenomenon of a dive site where a continuous stream of bubbles from underground the island seeps through, a sure sign of volcanic activity.

Huge coral bommies are strewn all over the place hide various forms of marine life including garden eels facing the current on the bottom. Sea snakes & green turtles thrive here.
