A quick weekend getaway at Puerto Galera

Puerto Galera is one of the popular destination among locals in Manila and its neighboring provinces. It is located south of Manila and within 3-4 hours, the sun, sand, and sea is all yours to enjoy. Because of it’s proximity to strategic locations and its inviting atmosphere, it has become one of the ideal destination for a quick weekend getaway.

This is Muelle Port, the first stop of the motorized banka (Motor boat) before arriving at white beach.

Puerto Galera is a public beach and there is no such thing as “off-peak” season in the island. All year round, local tourists flock here to have some fun and relaxation! 🙂

The beach is less crowded in the morning, it is the best time to do outdoor activities.

The island is filled with outdoor activities including snorkeling, banana boat ride, para-sailing, island hopping, etc..

The nightlife in the island is also active. You may choose from a wide variety of entertainment offered by different establishments from a cozy restaurant with acoustic bands performing while your having your dinner, to comedy bars that will set a happy atmosphere while your enjoying your drinks.

Look at that smile! 🙂
What am I looking for? hehe..

    1. Hi katerzyna! Thank you for your comment. Greatly appreciated! 🙂

      You’re most welcome to visit my country. We have many wonderful places here that I’m sure you will be having a great time. My personal recommendation is Palawan, it’s where you could find the Islands of Coron, Puerto Prinsesa, and El Nido.

      Also, don’t miss the island of Boracay.

      Always keep safe and have fun on your travels. 🙂

  1. AJ, thanks for the like of Heart to Heart through Turkey. This post brings back memories of my short adventure through the Philippines back in 1981. It included Batangas, Puerto Galera, and I think a morning snorkeling in Isla Verde.
