Well, I guess my first impression of Puerto Galera was on landing at Samll La laguna at high tide was: "Hey where is the beach ????? This dun look nothing like the pictures on the internet..." The waves were lapping up on the steps of my "beach front" hotel..... (Pretty narrow beach here, even at low tide....)
I guess it got a bit better from there, though.... Most days were clear, and fortunately the higher tides were mostly at night, so the beach was more presentable during the day most of the week. This did occasionally mean fighting back the waves to get back to your room at night, but I guess that is a fair trade....
If you are in Puerto Galera for the diving and/or crazy night life, I'm sure you can find what you want and have a good time. And even if the night life is not what you seek (as long as you stay clear of Sabang at night), the area does have quite a rustic feel to it.... (No roads/cars/email/newpapers, even electricity isnt a given.....) I dont think I heard a saw a motor vehicle till our last day when we boated over to Puerto Galera for some shopping....
I'm sure given the chance I be happy to visit again.... especially as it is pretty easy/cheap to get here from Taiwan.....
What to do in PG on no-dive days ?? Good Question..... well the beach is narrow and the beers are cheap, so best to grab... more travel advice
A little easier to spot (and photograph) is the full sized sea horses. These tend to hang out in the weeds off of Sabang... more travel advice
