Puerto Galera is one of the most visited beaches in the Philippines. This is my first time to have a vacation there.
We stayed at White Beach, Puerto Galera.( not to be confused with the white sand)
Here's how we got there:
From Dasmarinas, Cavite; we rented a van to Batangas Port.

We planned to go snorkeling and Island hopping! We also visited the giant clams, too bad none of us had an underwater camera.
|500 pesos for 3 activities: snorkeling , visiting the clams and underground caving|

It was my first time to try snorkeling, and I LOVED it. Since then, I craved for more! It was scary at first and the goggles are somehow tricky to use, but once you got the hang of it, it's actually pretty easy
I saw lot of fishes, colorful corals, giant clams, sea urchins and a sea snake.

Night comes, and were ready to party again!

Overall, the place is nice. Nightlife is good, there a lot of bars to try.
Souvenir Shops are cheap, clear water, white sand and most of all, a lot of nice people.
