Relaxing yet affordable beach trip Apr 05, 2011
Beach life must have been very exciting. Traveling to the beaches of Puerto Galera in Oriental Mindoro, Philippines is quite memorable, since this was the time that I fell in love with hitting the beach. Not far away from Manila, though, Puerto Galera's white sand beaches captivate the serenity in you.

If you are the type of having night life and seeing a lot of people, try Sabang or White Beach. But if you're the type that just wants to unwind from the hustles and bustles of city life and to unwind a little bit, then go to Talipanan. Most of the time, you and maybe your friends are just the people in the area, with some locals and foreign tourists visiting the famous Luca restaurant right at the tip of the island. Man, Italian food is great, especially if it is prepared by a genuine Italian chef, Luca. Pizza is also cooked in an old school brick oven that I often see in cooking shows.
Good place for snorkeling

White beach Pacific Divers Apr 14, 2011
Didi the man in charm is a charming French man with 6 languages under his belt.

He knows everything and has set up a restaurant in his dive center where you can meet all the people you need to know.

You wont run out of friends here because Didi will be the first friend you make and introduce you to people, even take you on trips to Sabang Disco Clubs at night after the night life on white beach ends

There is several beaches in Puerta Galera. To name a few:

White Beach: The place where filipinos go to have fun on the beach. It seems like a large gay comunity there if you are into that. No prostitutes (that i ran into). Alot of Bars and acomodation. Acomodation starts at P1000. (I bargained it down to 800)

Sabang Beach: Here you can expect that around 30% or more of the people you see are foreigners. There are alot of German and swedish bars and seems like alot of Germans and people from the US. The nightlife here is good, but the beach isnt that good so you only come here for the nightlife and the diving and snorkeling. There is VERY GOOD diving and snorkeling here. Just go snorkeling for some hours and you will see some good coral reefs.. To see a foreigner with a MUCH younger filipina girl is not uncommon and there is alot of prostitutes here. (if you are into that).. Be aware of girls being nice to you , it sucks that it have to be that way, but its the way it is). Acomodation from P500 and up (read my other review about Sonnys INN).. PS: If you want cheap food go a littlebit away from the city and find the places that the locals eat. (P70 for chicken curry or P35 for Noodles and Rice)

Aninuan Beach. Lying just 1km away from White beach.. If you take a swim outside of white beach you can see some nice mountains and they are even greater in Aninuan. So its nice to go there and see and you have the beach almost for yourself. (most people only go to white beach)

Other Beaches i didnt visit:

Small Laguna (500meters from Sabang) on the road that you find hemmingsway on the way out of town.

Big Laguna Beach. 1km from Sabang in the direction of Small Laguna.

Coco Beach. You have to get here by boat which is expensive,but the locals says its very rewarding.

-Alot of other beaches.. Its over 15beaches here!

BE AWARE THAT THERE IS NO ATMs IN PUERTO GALERA!! If you really need money you can go to Filipino Travel center , but they will charge you 5-7percent (5.5 with VISA , a littlebit more with other cards)
