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! On the way back to the village, make sure to stop by the juice stand... More

The hike up has no views and you can find garbage all along. When we got to the top the place was under construction and it was impossible to walk around the area. The hike is not too hard, but really it would have been good to place a sign or warning before going up. Disappointing

It was a very tiring hike, but the view is all worth it. It took us almost an hour before reaching the lighthouse. The people living along the route up the lighthouse were very friendly. We suggest you start going up by 5pm so you get to see the sun set by 6pm. Great view!

The view is very relaxing and peaceful as you watch the ships pass by the nearby Nautical highway. Birds singing and tweeting by the cliff where they peacefully built their nests. We watched the sunset here but didn't wait the sun to go down fully as we might be caught in the middle of the dark.

As this island has electricity only between 6 and 9:30, you are bound to go to sleep before 10 pm. And you will be woken up by the roosters (number of which may actually exceed number of inhabitants of the island or at least it fell like that) early in the morning. Go o the lighthouse to see the sunrise... 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 is indeed quite a steep climb, initially up a well paved stepped path. The onto... More

It's quite a walk to the lighthouse but it's well worth it. On the walk you will probably meet people who walk up and down 2-3 ties a day but just take it in their stride.
