Puerto Galera is a coastal town located on the northwestern portion of Oriental Mindoro. It is easily accessible by boat from Batangas Port. The main source of income switched from fishing to tourism as many fishermen earn better from activities driven by the influx of local and foreign visitors.
Puerto Galera is famous for its mountains, beaches and diving sites. Situated at the southwestern portion of Isla Verde Passage, which is said to be the world’s center of the center of marine biodiversity, it is no surprise that Puerto Galera is a paradise for many divers, locals and foreigners alike.
There are two main beaches: White Beach and Sabang Beach. White Beach was the first to undergo major developments and has now become the site of numerous resorts, restaurants, and bars. The nightlife at White Beach is very much alive and thriving. On the other hand, Sabang Beach is the calmer one. Foreigners usually choose to stay on this side of Puerto Galera.
