Stayed here four days in low season and enjoyed the beach, with plenty of room and few guests only. Have seen photos from high season - then it's a flypaper. Lots of bars and shops directly on the beach and in the evenings a lot of shows (drag - fire dancing etc.)

We stayed in Sabang (the opposite side) but visited this beach during one of the days we rented a motorcycle to explore Puerto Galera. It's a nice white sand beach (I've seen waaaaay better), but the surrounding area is not very aethetically pleasing. There were many activities going on and rentals being offered to us - jet skiing, banana boat... More

Try to limit your expectations to this place. I never thought that White Beach is no longer a great place to visit. Commercialized, trash here and there. This is just good for water sports and adventure. Oh and also for the souvenirs. :)

The place is offers its white fine sand and cool sea breeze at night. It is advisable that you visit the place during weekdays rather weekends. The place is weekends are jump packed with people especially at night.

Its actually the 3rd time i've visited puerto. We went last june. When we can't book a flight for our yearly vacation, the first place we think of is Puerto Galera. It's accessible, plus during this month, almost all resorts/hotels are on low prices. For 1200 per night, we got a room good for 3! We stayed at Orchid Lodge.... More

Crowded beach with plenty of water sports activities available. Best suited for groups of friends and backpack travelers.

Probably the most annoying part of going to a popular destination are the vendors. I understand they wanted to make a living but not their way of selling. A simple NO will not suffice. They will follow you until they (hoping) make a sale. I overheard one tourist whining about the vendors sell in the Philippines. It's just too much!

Best tattoo artists in Mindoro are at White Beach. If you want to get a tat while watching the passing beach walkers and looking out over the sand this is the place. Also lots of cheap eats there and if you feel adventurous you can hire jet ski's or even try para sailing.

fun fun fun...we had fun swimming and seeing all the beautiful places in Puerto Galera. Playing the sand there. Less expensive food and souvenirs. If you love disco or bar hopping, this place is for you..You can dance in the sea shore. You can also watch a fire dancing human..hahaha...
