Go with an open mind.

Lively night life, with numerous food outlets. Open to characters with plenty of friendly, noisy people around.

I think during off season this place seems even more slimy than during peak season as there are less tourists to offset the negative image, prostitutes, hustlers etc. If you are a single who wants to party go for it, but for families give it a pass.

The nice place to go to hang at the beach or engage in watersports. I went there a bunch of times to hang out and eat or shop

Lots of water sports available ( good prices, jet ski is 1,000 Pesos for 30 minutes) Mostly a younger crowd here. Fire dancers at night. Lots of beer bars. SCUBA diving available. So so organization. They ask you for a massage constantly.

Do not know why they call it white beach it is just a beach...very hard to get to as there is limited access from the main road. We did travel in low season and the place was a absolutely dead..was of a day trip... Hotels dont look as good as Sabang beach but beach better..

Not white in August. Maybe due to rainy season and typhoon. I'll have to check it out another time. The area in general is quite run down.

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.
