White Beach in Puerto Galera offers guests so many activities to make one's stay unforgettable; beach playing, swimming, water sports, deep sea diving, and island hopping plus shopping for numerous souvenirs are common sights during the day.
For more adventurous guests, a tricycle ride along the national highway will bring you to nearby Puerto Galera Yacht Club, Ponderosa Golf Course, the municipal museum,Tamaraw Falls, and more local attractions. Tricycle ride though in this place (which is the most common form of land transport) is very expensive so better if you can bring your own motorbike for easy mobility. Be cautious of tricycle drivers who take advantage of their seeming monopoly and failure of local authorities to offer less expensive mass transport system, enforce reasonable fare rates & safeguard the interests of tourists. A 4x4 or other lighter vehicles can also be used and can be brought here from mainland Luzon via the Batangas Port on-board Ro-Ro serving Batangas-Balatero route. Another option is the Calapan City-Puerto Galera highway which has become attractively passable. The Rule of the Thumb is bring your own vehicle if you wanna explore Puerto Galera.
During late afternoon till early evening, when crowd started massing along the beach, resort and restaurant owners bring out tables and chairs onto the beachfront offering various food and drink choices. Promotional shows, band competitions, bikini open, local and manila-based entertainers, and other gigs follow till the wee hours of the night... others enjoy beach party wilder than one can imagine! Children should be kept in hotel rooms after dinner !!
White Beach hotels and Inns triple their room rates during peak season (a 1k peso room during rainy days goes as high as 3.5K between February and May) so plan your trip, book early if possible and avoid the inconvenience of having to find no available room to stay at the White Beach.
... well, others find the white sand of Puerto Galera good place enough to sleep the night away
... there's more in White Beach than can be written

The beach is just ok. At november there are a few stinging jellyfish. The water is surprisingly cold either am or afternoon swim. Its not boracay but is near enough manila if you want a weekend respite from work.

Trying to emulate Boracay I think, but far from it. I prefer Panglao on Bohol or Bantayan, but then that's only my humble opinion.

I went to Puerto Galera to enjoy and unwind. I enjoyed a lot with my teammates. We enjoyed the island hopping and snorkling..We went to the bar and drink till the sun rises. you'll defenitely love this province, once your there you don't want to leave. every night is so exciting, you can't afford to stay on your room all night or all day because you can do a lot of things in this place. soo fun..
