White Beach, Puerto Galera, Oriental Mindoro

Puerto Galera is one of the most visited beaches in the Philippines. This is my first time to have a vacation there.
White Beach

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.
Picture Taking @ Van
 From the Port, we rode a ferry boat that will take us to Puerto Galera.

Day 2:

We planned to go snorkeling and Island hopping! We also visited the giant clams, too bad none of us had an underwater camera.

Ready for snorkeling!

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.

Goodbye Galera



Feil and Lea
 The boat ride from Mindoro to Batangas is almost 1 hour and I got back in Alabang at 3 pm.

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.

Goodbye for Now!
