Puerto Galera- Simply Paradise

dsc_3314

139.9 Kilometers away from Manila lay the beautiful island of Puerto Galera. It is just 3 to 4 hours away from the city and there is no need to ride a plane to reach the place.

Boracay has been a favorite spot among tourists. However, getting in the place requires riding an airplane, which means you need a big budget. Not everyone of course can afford to visit the place. Most of us just want to escape from the stress of the city and relax for some time. If you do not have enough budget and yet want to have the feel of Boracay Island, Puerto Galera is the perfect place to be. To get there, one needs to ride a vehicle to Batangas and then take a short ferryboat ride to Puerto Galera. The short distance means cheap transportation cost compared to Boracay.

There are four ways to go to Puerto Galera:

                                                                        Public Transport

                                                                        Private Charter

                                                                       Via SuperCat

                                                                        Bus Ferry

Puerto Galera harbors diverse coral reefs ideal for snorkeling and diving. This is also the reason why it was recognized as a Man and Biosphere Reserve of UNESCO in 1973. There will never be enough time in the day to visit all the tourist spots in Puerto Galera. Here are the areas you should not miss to visit while you are in the island.
