White Beach

Puerto Galera in Mindoro, Philippines is one of the most famous beach destination for people in Manila. It is just 2hours bus ride from Manila to Batangas Port and another 1 and a half hour boat ride to White beach. The Beach resort accommodations are also affordable and the Beach itself is pretty much good. It may not be as good as Boracay (Boracay is way better than White Beach, of course) but choosing this Beach for a weekend getaway is not bad at all. Its a white sand beach turns party at night.

Beach Party

Puerto Galera has plenty to offer, there are caves, you can go hiking, sun bathing at white beach, snorkeling, jet skiing and other water sports and there are several resort to choose from midscale to upscale private resorts. Here are some links of the accommodations:



Its also good for a family travel. Just avoid peak seasons like, All saints day and All souls day. Avoid month of May, the long weekend of Holy week for the beach gets very crowded at this season.

If you wish to have like a private resort, try The Castle Resort at Sabang, Puerto Galera. Its called castle resort for the structure of the actual building and its facade is like a traditional castle.
