apo island: a photo gallery
These photos were taken during our visit last March 2015. Feel free to click on the photos for a larger view. Unfortunately, I have disabled right-clicking on the photos. If you would need to save the photos or use it for something else, please feel free to contact me. I would be more than happy to share them with you. :D

noontime in apo island

apo island lighthouse
Left: Apo Island Lighthouse with a warm, 'The Prairie' kind of look (this was edited in Adobe Lightroom)
Upper Right: Apo Island Lighthouse edited a bit just to make the sky pop out. Photo taken at around 4 o'clock in the afternoon.
Lower Left: Background of the lighthouse seemingly on fire. That's called a sunrise. :)
Lower Right: A signage on the way to the lighthouse.
liberty's lodge -- one of the few resorts in the island
Upper Left: Best view of the sunset in the island. I guess, this would be one of the most expensive rooms in the resort.
Upper Right: Liberty Lodge from the beach. Lots of white and green rooms.
Lower Left: The 'take one leave one' library of the lodge. A very creative concept.
Lower Right: View of the beach from the restaurant which anyone has access to, even non-guests.
an afternoon of people watching
First row, left: Tourists lounge in front of Liberty's Lodge, watching the sun set.
First row, right: Water and other goods being unloaded off a boat from Malatapay. Tourists and locals patiently wait for until the boat is ready to return to mainland.
Second row, left: Tourists and locals spend the day on the sand, playing and watching the magnificent sunset.
Second row, right: Kids play by the beach.
Third row, left: The inner streets of Apo Island, near the residential areas.
Third row, right: Kids playing by the beach asking me to take their photo. They were talking about the girls they like at school. Hehe! :)
the pathway to the viewdeck/lighthouse
Upper Left: A part of the walkway without stairs.
Upper Right: Concrete steps that the local government of Apo Island has made to make it easier for tourists and locals to climb up the summit of the island.
Lower Left: A flat terrain after the steep climb signalling that you're nearing the viewdeck.
Lower Right: Another part of the walkway without concrete. I would prefer to walk on these than the stairs.
sunrise and sunset spotting
Upper photos: Sunrise at the viewdeck/lighthouse.
Lower left: Sunset at the viewdeck/lighthouse. Other side, obviously.
Lower middle & right: Sunset by the beach.
