Cream sand plus lots of water sports offers jetski, parasail, kayak, bananaboat etc). The place has a wide range of accommodations, restos, bars and other stuff. It would be great for those who prefer a bustling beach life day and night. Crowded and noisy for me, though.

came back here for its stunning and breathtaking marine life, spectacular sunset, beautiful and pristine beaches, though White Beach could be so crowded at this time of the year. You may opt to party at night on the west side of the shore or chill into some acoustic reggae music by sundown on the east side - we'll keep coming... More

White beach is a decent beach near metro manila. You can go to white beach without a need to bring your car. Get into a bus in Cubao or Buendia for 167.00 pesos going to Batangas port. At the port you pay 230.00 pesos for the boat ride and terminal fee of 30.00 pesos going to white beach. The beach... More

i was excited about my first ever visit in puerto galera. what's good about it, is it was unplanned, with a bunch of friends. upon arrival, i was amazed by the beach, though i couldn't help but be biased comparing it to boracay, i lowered my expectations. We didn't had trouble finding an accommodation because it was packed. the only... More

From the view in our hotel (Summer Connection), this beach looks like a mini-Boracay - nice white sand beach, gleaming blue water that descends gradually, water sports equipment everywhere, people just having fun swimming and strolling and fun bars, stores and restaurants. Just go get yourself a nice resort like ours and have fun in this beautiful beach 'near' Manila.

I enjoyed everything there, the beach, people, price. Mingling with the locals is great.Just don't expect fine dining.

Went here for a day trip. Must try out the pizza place right at the end of the beach. It's worth the walk. Beautiful water as expected. Only a few shops/stalls, not that touristy. You need to get a tricycle from the main area on the island.

The place is too much cluttered. A lot of vendors, too many people and arid. I won't recommend this to those who wants to relax and stay calm and serene. A lot of wild party was going on here when we visited. We originally stayed at Sabang (a much more quieter preference) and decided to hop here but we didn't... More

Long white sand beach, perfect for sunbathing and swimming. There's a floating bar and shopping stalls for souvenirs.

If youre looking for amusement, youll find them all here. Great food choices for every budget. White sand beach is okay but dont expect it to be as fine as boracay. I didnt enjoy the beach though coz of the boats/jetskis docked a few feet from the shore. The hotels here are overpriced so we stayed at a quieter and... More
