PUERTO GALERA : "One of the Most Beautiful Bays in the World"

Puerto Galera has recently hit the international tourism limelight, given the "The Most Beautiful Bay in the World" award for 2005 by the UNESCO, following its presentation in Agadir, Morocco last November 2004. Puerto Galera is the 32nd bay worldwide to get the award and the third in Southeast Asia after Nha Trang Bay and Along Bay in Vietnam.

Beach and fun

Shopping on the beach


SNORKELING

Puerto Galera is famnous for the great scuba diving , but look at what one of our customers wrote to us:

Mark: "btw: I missed the golfing from the roof at teh resort, I went snorkling and fish feeding instead - that's something you should promote on your site :-) the snorkling at the giant clam site was better than most of the dives! and the fish feeding is also great fun. "

PARTY HARDY!


You'll love the Puerto Galera nightlife! Party away the night in tropical paradise. With bars, restaurants and clubs, you'll have a great time.

Puerto Galera Nightlife | Party at the Bars in Puerto Galera

When it comes to the Puerto Galera nightlife, there are many exciting options to choose from.

Staying up till the early hours of the morning is a simple task as there are ample opportunities for entertainment. It doesn¡¦t have to break the bank either, as the Philippines is very cheap. You can stay out all night for little more than the price of a meal back home.

Most bars and nightlife options are focused around the two main tourist areas ¡V Sabang and White Beach.

Puerto Galera Nightlife in Sabang

Sabang is one of the numerous barangays (small town) in the area of Puerto Galera. It¡¦s packed with nightlife and bar option sand live music /disco venues

During the evening, Sabang is busy with activity. If you¡¦re searching for a place to drink, you don¡¦t have to go far. The most popular bars are a little way back from the beach, but they are very easy to find.

Whether you¡¦re looking for a romantic evening in a first class restaurant, cheap drinks in a bikini bar or a wild night dancing, Sabang has you covered.

The main street is lined with bars, cafes, restaurants, supermarkets and hot dog stalls. Drinks are generally inexpensive and widely available. Options include ice cold beers, milkshakes, juice, soda and water.

Most nights, if you listen carefully, you¡¦ll hear live music somewhere, often reggae or an acoustic set. It¡¦s worth finding the bar and having a listen as very talented musicians frequent Sabang.

As far as Puerto Galera nightlife goes, Sabang focuses on the girly bar scene. While the bars come and go regularly, there is usually 5 or 6 bars to choose from where you can watch hot Filipina girls strut their stuff. The drinks are cheaper than the main cities, though more expensive than the ordinary bars.

Narrow walkways allow easy passage to and from each venue. Sabang is a great place for bar hopping with each bar being within a minute¡¦s walk of the others.

While you¡¦re enjoying the Puerto Galera nightlife and bars, make sure you try the Mindoro Sling! It¡¦s a deadly concoction typically made with vodka or rum and should be consumed slowly

If you¡¦re in Sabang during the day, many of the restaurants are open, as well as open-air bars and boutique stalls. During the high season, there are also floating bars in the bay which make for an exciting experience in tropical paradise. Catch the ferry or swim right up to it.

The floating bars are a very different experience if you¡¦ve usually spent most of your time in typical bars. The bar literally floats upon the bay and comes complete with tables, drinks, food and videoke. It¡¦s a big hit with many tourists, especially people who come here for the Puerto Galera diving.

Puerto Galera Nightlife in White Beach

White Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Puerto Galera, particularly with Filipino tourists. From March through May, hundreds populate the beach and when Holy Week arrives, that number increases to the thousands.

For Puerto Galera nightlife and bars, White Beach is the more family-oriented option, especially when compared with Sabang. Like Sabang, it¡¦s 10 minutes away on a motorbike from the most relaxed Puerto Galera resort, Badladz Adventure Resort.

During the day, people convene on the beach for volleyball, massages, sunbathing, swimming and jetskis. At night, the bars and restaurants fill up with partygoers. Again, it¡¦s a great place for bar hopping and you can dance away the night. At dawn, sit on the beach and watch one of the best sunrises in the Philippines!

Many of the Puerto Galera bars in White Beach also serve the infamous Mindoro Sling. There are also a number of tattoo parlors and souvenir stores.

Fortunately, Puerto Galera weather doesn¡¦t change a thing. The party goes on; rain, hail or shine.

Eating - We like pizza at Vesuvius and Sea food & Steak at Hazel - Sabang

 

SAILING

Learn To Sail Philippines


Sailing Courses In the Most Beautiful Bay in the World !

Puerto Galera offers one of the most beautiful destinations in the World in which to learn to sail, with crystal¡Vclear, warm tropical waters 365¡Vdays a year. Light to moderate sailing breezes are almost guaranteed so students learn to sail faster and achieve greater success. Since 2005 the PGYC has completed more than three hundred sailing courses where students learn to sail, using the unique, made¡Vin¡VPuerto Lawin sailing dinghy. Our students come from all around Asia and even from as far as England, Alaska, Estonia, New Zealand and Australia.

The Lawin sailing dinghy design was selected specifically as the Puerto Galera Learn To Sail boat because it has a standard mainsail¡Vand¡Vjib sail plan, so that everything a sailing student learns here can be applied directly on larger yachts everywhere.

Sailing courses cater for students of all ages (our youngest graduate was 8 years old and our eldest so far was 54) and because Puerto Galera is a mecca for all water sports, in between sailing courses students can go scuba diving, windsurfing, snorkelling, jet skiing, kayaking or simply bask in the beauty of Puerto Galera¡¦s mangrove fringed paradise.

The Puerto Galera Yacht Club also offers an afternoon Wet Wednesday Sailing Experience event throughout much of the year. Specifically designed for those who don¡¦t yet know if they are ready for a sailing course but want to see what it feels like to take control of a sailboat and have some fun with like minded individuals. Once a month (or thereabouts) this is extended to a whole day of fun on the water, with a sailing expedition to a local beach, lunch, and a leisurely sail back to the club in the afternoon. No previous sailing experience is needed for either event. Novices are paired with experienced sailors in each sailboat and a safety boat is with the fleet the whole time. It¡¦s best to telephone call beforehand so that you know what the plan for the day is and so the boats and lunch can be prepared.

Here is our first testimonial for our Philippine Packages from Taiwan!

Hi
Ek wil jou maar net laat weet ons het n fantastiese tyd gehad die naweek! Kan oor niks kla wat jy vir ons gereel het nie!die hotel en al sy mense was wonderlik en so hulpvaardig! Ons het ons self baie geniet, net di oorige smouse was so nou en dan n las, maar niks wat ons nie kon hanteer nie. N waarskuwing dat hulle vir ons terminal tax vra by lughawe PHP 550 ( NT 400/US$14). Ons sal defnitief weer gaan en dink daar aan om die naweek van 29/12-1/1 weer te gaan. Wil net eers bietjie ons vriende jaloers maak oor die trip, dat hulle kan saam kom! Jy sal binne kort weer van my hoor! Baie dankie vir die goed georganiseerde reelings! Agv jou is ons verlief op Sabang, ! Die massage op die see was fantasties!!!


Baie dankie!!
Suzanne
