  • Had a great fun with my family. Nice and calm water to swim around the beaches. Since we went on a public holiday it was little bit over crowed. Enjoyed snorkeling, visit to the cave and island hoping. Food was great and we had lots of choices. We stayed in sea jewel resort and we had a comfort and enjoyable stay. Just be careful with the water activity company in the white beach. They cheated us 100peso after the deal. I know its a small amount but they dont mind or care when we questioned them about the amount.
  • Beautiful beach and fun. Good restaraunts
  • The sea adventure is the best! I definitely recommend trying their snorkling activity and you'll be fascinated by their magnificent coral reefs.
  • Don't have much restaurants. Bad seafood and other food. The white bus on boat station cheated us. We don't need to paid the fee ticket from boat station to white beach, he took me 100p. You can bargain a half price for tricycle.
  • A beautiful beach in Puerto Galera. Avoid going here during summer time (months of March to May), if you prefer less people in the beach and not so crowded restaurants and bars nearby.
