    Me and my friends visited Puerto Galera.
    The beach was very pretty, water was nice and it was pretty clean.
    There’s a lot of corals and rocks so you can’t really swim.
    The water is inviting and safe to swim in,lots of pretty shells and corals, however it was disappointing to see so much trash washed up. I'm thinking its come from elsewhere rather than locals dumping it, and oddly an insane amount of plastic, also washed ashore. Its a pity because otherwise this is a fabulous pot, and the locals are very welcoming.

    Went here when in Puerto Galera. Just love getting in the Philippine country. A ride on a carabio (not sure how u spell that) gets us to the falls. Lovely swimming hole, walking over the rocks. Had their BBQ lunch with a beer. Time to pay for everything. The 3 escort tourist girls, did help me walk over the rocks, gave them P100 each. Read where some people get up set about having to give them some pesos but gee only a couple of dollars & the girls said they don't have a salary just rely on what they get from the tourist. Then stopped at the tourist shop. The girls bought a dress, me just a fridge magnet. The trike driver was excellent comes with experience I guess. Ok do put this place on your "must go to" well worth a day trip.

    It is a nice ride on the motorbike along the coast to get there. Only the ride there is already worth it. The pools under the falls are nice and cold and with a great view over the forrest. The place needs a upgrade/maintenance, but the pools themselves and the view are very nice.

    Super nice beach at the end of the road (for now) west of Puerto Galera. Well worth the visit. Very Cool.

    Take your own food and drinks and enjoy some peace and quiet here. The water is great. The sand is white and soft. And there are hardly any people here. I highly recommend visiting this great beach.

    Amazing hike for those who go all the way to the summit, most posts seem to be by people who just ventured below the summit.
    In the Philippines, a country with decimated forests first by US logging companies in the 50s then by locals cutting trees to make charcoal, it is an amazing sight to see real tropical ecosystems still functionning with giant furs.
    Can be muddy at the top, be ready and enjoy the beauty!

    Great place with great food. Good for a relaxed day with or without kids. Dogs allowed ! So ideal if your furry partner wants to take a swim.

    Spend 3 days going to the summit of Mt. Halcon and the climb was more than worth it upon reaching the summit. The pleasure was great. Hopefuly next summer my schedule will permit to go back here.

    Book well in advance. We couldn't get rooms here booking 4 months in advance for Christmas holiday. We did use EACY dive school which was fabulous and based right at the resort. So we used the resort during a couple of days of our kids taking dive lessons. The food was really good, the beachfront area very nice. We wished we could have stayed at this resort. The beach right in front is better than the beach right in front of Sunset resort next door. The pool is nice. Quite narrow for a lot of swimming and games. The sand is nice but the rocky entrance was a lot wider and harder to get across than on White Beach. And a lot more rocks past the rocky entrance to watch out for once you are in the water. Not as ideal for kids. Definitely quieter than White beach. It's pretty, but I actually found White beach as a whole, a prettier beach. If we returned to this area we would definitely try to stay at this resort!

    Local falls up in the mountains. 1 hr hike roughly over sometimes slippery rocks. The local guide was invaluable. We were a group of 10. As young as 3 years old. The kids had great fun climbing over the rocks and swim in the top pool.

    I felt this was an important visit to make to see and support the fine handcraft of the villagers, the elementary school and to learn of the impact of the generosity of the philanthropist and founding couple, Jaime Zobel de Ayala and his wife Donya Bea on the preservation of the traditions of these people.

    "When you think of puerto Galera, one of the first places that pops into your mind is white beach. But there's a lot more town and for those who willing to explore and one of those places is muelle bay".
    If you wish to explore muelle bay will give you with all you want and needs, if you'll find lots of shops bars and restaurant. But if you've only got a day or two to spare you can watch the sunset or sunrise with your family, couples and friends, and if you want to go on a boating tour you can go in coral garden, munting buhangin it is frequently visited around muelle bay. Enjoy the peace and quiet away from city life is always great for relieving stress.
