The main (but not the only) downside are hawkers. I travelled a lot and saw many of them, and they are tolerable in most of the world. But those in Puerto Galera area are really ruining your pleasure and privacy. They cruise the beach constantly ringing bells just near ears of peolpe, try to grab your attention violently appearing in... More

Affordable and accessible from metro manila. Just 4 hours of travel and you'll be at the beach. The sand is fine and the water is clean. Locals are very polite and hospitable. A lot of water activities. Night life is good and very active. Perfect for a weekend getaway from stress.

This beach has absolutely beautiful views of the other islands and the surrounding mountains.The sand isn't the best I've seen, but that's not what this beach is about. Instead, it offers an absolutely delightful scenery. It is great at sunset, when it looks stunning. At the same time it is a bit commercialized, with banana boat rides and pushy salespeople,...

White beach is entertaining to go out and drink. There is good fire dancers and funny lady men's. Unfortunately the restaurants are dirty places and to go out to the main road is dirty and even scarry. Just go there enjoy the shows and get drunk.

Beach is ok, but better to follow the Calapan N Road a bit further till the very end and find the much nicer Aninuan and the prizewinner Talipanan Beach! Those two beaches have far less shops and people, so if that's what you like...

Not the best beach, noisy with loud techno music, busy with jetskis, inflatable attractions, paragliding etc. Puerto Galera has much better to offer. Food is also terrible... restaurants show "all you can eat rice"... well, it means what it means.

White Beach is the main attraction in Puerto Galera, though there are also other beaches but the other beaches are very sleepy. If you want to enjoy the most of White Beach, then you must book your hotel room near or around White Beach. Otherwise you have to take a tricycle to get to the White Beach and you would... More
