Puerto Galera

Puerto Galera is located at the northern part of Mindoro Oriental. It is a province in Region IV-B MIMAROPA (short for the provinces Mindoro Oriental and Occidental, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan) of the Philippines’ archipelago.

Here’s our travel log to the one of the most visited summer destinations in Luzon.

How to go to Puerto Galera?

  3. Ride Tricycle from Batangas Port to your accommodation. I suggest select a hotel near White beach.

Places to Visit in Puerto Galera

It’s been 3 months since the last time that we went to a beach. We are really excited for this trip. The squad isn’t complete but we were able to come up with a group of seven – Jin, Cath, Ivann, Joy, Jhulie, May and me.

Here are the places we visited. This is a free-flowing and a DIY Puerto Galera itinerary.

Day 1: Island Hopping

For our first day, we decided to go on an Island Hopping. We rented a boat for Php 1500.00 for our group. Destinations are Boquete Island, San Antonio Island, Haligi Beach, Banayan Beach and Coral Garden.

I super enjoyed the Coral Garden – a popular spot where we can feed the fish with pieces of bread.

After the island hopping, since we are not yet tired, we go on swimming and walk along the beach. 

Day 2: Water Activities / Night Life

We spent our 2nd day at the White Beach. We did tried water activities such as Tornado and Flying Fish.

Riding this Tornado is the most intense water activity that we’ve tried. There are lot of times when I almost slipped going off to the water. It was really fun.

During the night, there are lots of restaurants along White Beach for your dinner. Fire dancers starts at around 8-9pm, you can watch while eating. There are also comedy stage performances that will surely make you laugh as you watch them perform.

Day 3: White Beach

Chill-in at the beach. You can check other beaches in Puerto Galera like Aplaya Munti Beach and Bulabod Beach. For us we stayed at White Beach. We bought pasalubongs/souvenirs also.

Puerto Galera Hotels/ Accommodation:

We availed the room which can accommodate us all, 7 persons. We chose the one near White Beach. It costs us Php 1,500/night, 1 wide room with 2 beds and 2 mattress bed with a TV, aircon and bathroom.

I appreciate that the owner let us cook in their roof top area. We just bought grocery supplies in their market – which is just a walking distance from White beach.

Travel Tip: If you want a less crowded view of Puerto Galera, go there during off-peak season.
