Nice white sand, a lots of food choices, people are nice. Not so crowded during low season. There is a lots of souvenir shop. I like the place but I don't like to stay ther coz water in the shower is not so good. Floating bar is nice. A lots of activities to do.

This is the place to go if you are looking for a loud, commercialized party beach with all condiments...

Dirty beach and surrounds. Charmless place and people. There are much better places around PG to visit, with better attractions, food and friendly people.

If you visit Puerto Galera don`t stay here. The beach is dirty, full of seedy bars trying to sell horrible food and drinks. I thought being near Manila and a known beach will be more developed and cleaner. Here you cannot find even a nice resort, all are creepy and very bad mantained. Choose to stay in the near beach,...

Nothing compared to Bora. Boracay have finer and whiter sand. But fair enough if you just want to unwind and have some beach parteyy!

We visited this place twice before, the first time 10 and 4 years ago then the third time and LAST was 2 months ago. The atmosphere was unfriendly and the buildings around the place were so run down. The so-called White Beach Resort and Restaurant is pathetic! The bathroom had an old shower pipe without a shower head! It is... More

Puerto Galera is accessible and far cheaper than going to Boracay. The beach is alright as compared with the other beaches in Batangas, for instance. However, we did not get to enjoy swimming since the tide was high. The waves were huge and as we tried swimming, we would come crashing down, face down. It was okay but I prefer... More

Many of the locals told me this was the beach to go to, but when I arrived I was unimpressed. It is a nice beach with white sand, so what? If you are staying at a hotel nearby, might was well go... but don't go out of your way to visit it. Some of the locals told me evening is... More

I rented a bike and rode here from Sabang. The guys renting bikes will tell you 500 peso but you can get them down to 300-350 peso. Bike rental is not 24hrs like other places so try and pick up the bike early as you need to return it in the evening. The ride to White Beach takes about half... More
