Situated in Mindoro Island, Philippines, Puerto Galera is a town made famous by its very own White Beach. It is very easy to go to even if it is roughly 5 hours away from all the major airports in Manila.
Are you looking for ways to fully enjoy your holiday in Puerto Galera? Here's how to have an unforgettable summer in this beach.
The White Beach
You can enjoy white sands at the White Beach. Along its beaches, there are many grills, restaurants, bars and accommodation that suit your budget without sacrificing showers and TV, or you can get a room for a lower rate if it's not air-conditioned. During the day, you can rent a banana boat and have the time of your life in the water! Once the sun sets, most of the restaurants turn into night clubs, making the perfect venue for dancing and partying all night by the beach.
You can also enjoy the Tamaraw Falls, which is just a few minutes away from the White Beach. There are jeeps or vans for rent that can take tourists near the falls, then the remaining distance will need to be traveled by foot. Here you can experience bathing under the falls, or in the pool where the fresh water from the mountains collect.
Golfing and Diving
Divers are naturally drawn to the marine sanctuary that Puerto Galera offers. There are a lot of dive shops in Sabang and White Beach that offer deals that include diving lessons, diving tours, hotels, meals and transfer. There is also a golf course within the area where those who are not into diving can enjoy.
Puerto Galera probably has a little bit of something for everyone looking for a splendid holiday vacation. From budget to luxurious accommodations and activities, this small town has it!
