I'm not fond of crowded places like this, I was just curious about the place. The beach is nice, yes, but it gets dirty when it's overly crowded. I guess, the place needs more employees that would maintain its cleanliness.

I love the party at night, the people, the food and the accommodation but the beach and the beach area are dirty. Full of trash and cigarette butt. There's environmental fee but there were no people who clean the area.

We took our rented motorbike to white beach and stayed for the afternoon. There's a parking lot just before you get to the beach. Great beach with lovely views. A bit rocky but good enough for swimming. Yes there are a lot of vendors that offer souvenirs and watersports activities but if you decline they go away. Not to be... More

The beach is lovely. The sea is good for swimming, be aware it drops off to deep very quickly if you have young kids. There are lots of small dive shops/restaurants to sit and chill between dips. We were there off season so not crowded and maybe that is why the vendors were pushy. If you are looking for a... More

White beach, Puerto Galera has grainy, coarse dirty white to pebbly beach majority of which are round, smooth and moderately sized. It has one of the best sunsets in this side of Luzon island. Generally overcrowded during the summer months but when I came this July, it was sunny and quiet. It's a mini Boracay in terms of the party... More

If you like swimming and a good family place then White's Beach is a great place to go when in Puerto Galera. The Pizza place is got the best Pizza on the island. Kinda hard to climb the steep stairs but well worth it.

Beach is clean. Lots of water sports activities but be careful when booking, it could be pricey. Beware of vendors and dogs. Lots of friendly people around. Great Volley ball net to play rent for an hour. Bring your own ball or you have to rent. Do not recommend going to white beach bar and restaurant. Food is horrible. Lots... More
