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

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

I'ts so crowded, specially on the weekend. The sand not so white but fine. Dine on the beach front with lots of restaurants to choose. This is a fun place specially on summer time. But we did not picked a hotel here. It gets too crazy sometimes.

The water was calm, there's a pebble beach part and there's a white sand beach part. You could look through the clear water and see the pebbles of different colors. Sometimes a a school of small fish would swim around my feet. Pure joy and pure encounter with nature. I'll be back there!
