Love the night life on the beach but it sucks that there are no ATMs and touts keep walking up to you.. It's a pretty active beach even during off season. My wife got a tattoo at one of the parlors and the color quality turned out kind of poor so I'd stay away from that. There are considerable amount... More

We took a day trip to White beach from Sabang. This beach is great for water sports. There is nice white sand and no corals or rocks in the way of enjoying the surf. There were many pushy people trying to sell us things. We were there around noon and decided to pick a restaurant on the beach. The first... More

Kind of dirty and the hotels are not up to par for my standards. The beach isn't well maintained. It is a bit hard to get to as well.

This beach is rather busy; however, I disagree with most of the bad reviews on here about White Beach. I did like it here and the water is nice and so is the sand. That being said, this is not the kind of beach you would wanna go to if you are looking for loneliness and quietness. For that purpose... More

White beach is full of cheap places to stay, inexpensive places to eat and has a real dive beach atmosphere. It has also, great views, water appeared very clean but somewhat rocky access and beach is about what you expect in P. Galera. Vendors are like flies but easily give up when you say no. I for one like honky... More

This place has really clear water though it was cold when we go there. I guess its way better during the summer. The only downside is that the place tends to be crowded, a lot of peddlers constantly offering bracelets, foods and even Bluetooth speakers. For a traveler that prefers relaxation and tranquility, this will get annoying after some time.

I wasn't really comfortable at the beach. Here were too many hawkers, and for me I had the impression from the reviews that it was lovely and clean.. And that it wasn't. I'm sorry.

Place is nice, people are warm and prices of stuff are reasonable except for the drinking water. Suggest to bring your own, if possible.

This beach was probably once a beautiful place. It still has some beauty about it, but it is spoiled by being overcrowded. There are too many hawkers and the restaurants are not good. It is not the kind of place to hang out if you are looking for a tranquil beach. It is better to go further to Talipanan for... More
