White Beach, Puerto Galera – November 2014
Puerto Galera is a perfect place here in the Philippines, for me, to go on vacation. It’s not that far from the city, because a travel from Manila to Batangas pier would only take you a hour or 2, and then a boat ride from Batangas pier to White Beach is just a hour. Waiting time depends on the season, of course. But if you go there not during summer or with no occasion/holidays, no stress guaranteed.
I usually go there in random days to relax and swim, and most especially to get tanned; or in some days, to relieve a broken heart and stress. I always spend 2 to 3 days there, and that’s enough to feel the view, breeze of the air and the sun. But if you’re into trekking, snorkeling, hiking, banana-boat riding and para-sailing, 2-3 days might not be enough.
Food are affordable. You can jive mostly on Filipino specialties and seafood. Some restaurants offer other dishes, but I would really suggest that you try Filipino food.
Here are some photo’s I took using my phone:
