Puerto Galera

To get to Puerto Galera, you have a couple of options. One, is a RORO. That means Roll On, Roll Off. You can drive your car right onto the boat and drive it off on the other side. This is a good option if you are exploring more of Mindoro or headed to Abra de Ilog. If you are going a resort in Puerto Galera, a better option is to book a private banka (boat) through the resort you are staying at. Sometimes if this happens, the boat will be able to drop you right on the beach of the hotel.

Diving options are available at all resorts or really close. Snorkeling is done from a boat in some great spots. The resorts can tell you what they have activity wise to offer.

One of the top choices among IRRI expats. They are a great resort with good amenities, a pool, nice beach area and good service with clean rooms. They will also help with the private transport from Batangas. Up the beach a bit is a place called white beach. That’s where all the “action” is. Easy to have the hotel take you there, or just walk along the beach, though part of the beach is walking over larger rocks. There is a great Italian restaurant just on the other side of those large rocks called CasaMia Pizzeria Italiana. A great resort/spa feel and is a great place to unwind. Some of the rooms come with private pools. 5-star resort in Puerto Galera. It claims the 5-star luxury and feel. Great pizza place just up the beach from here called Luca’s.
