Can't find Aplayang Munti Beach or Virgin Beach. Been 3 times in Puerto Galera but Aplayang Munti is a must-visit beach! It's a 1 hour drive from White Beach and you'll never regret it! Instead of sands, pebbles are in the shore. Water is so warm and clear and it's perfect for Kayaking!

Puerto Galera was amazing- we went snorkeling and saw a giant turtle just 10 feet from us. The coral reef was absolutely ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. We also rode jetskis and flyboards which were right on the beach and so much fun. The amazing sunset was the perfect end to each day. Only complaint are the vendors that are desperate for a... More

It was low season when me and my fiancée went there. He had been to PG few times, particularly in White Beach and it was my first time. I've been invited with people to go there but I didnt get the chance to for some reason. They all say it is a hassle and FUN to go at high season... More

There are lots of inexpensive restaurants here as well as shops and other amenities. It's a bit touristy, however it's well worth a visit. At night, the area is transformed by good quality acts on the beach and is the most vibrant place in the area! It's not really much good for snorkelling or anything like that, but the beach... More

It's not what I would call white and you are pestered by all the sellers who are pushy - tip don't buy anything from then and the next day they leave you alone. Literally the moment the massage on the beach finished - crap was shoved in face, a non polite go away still didn't push them away.

Intense amounts of hawkers. Strange planning with a well kept place hidden behind a dirty ally. Ideal for younger party goers, people seeking a peaceful getaway skip this place and go 2km further to Talipan beach.

White Beach is where the action is if you plan to visit Puerto Galera. It is more accessible from Manila compared to Boracay. This place gets too crowded at summer time and during the Holy Week.
