Puerto Galera Travel Guide


For people who want to experience beach party on a tight budget, I think Puerto Galera is a place for you. Located in Oriental Mindoro, Puerto Galera is only 3 to 4 hours away from Metro Manila. 

Puerto Galera Travel Guide


How to get there?

From Pasay (LRT Buendia):

You have to take a bus bound to Batangas Pier/Calabarzon. There are many bus terminals bound to Batangas Pier but personally, I chose JAC Liner. Usually, these buses bound to Batangas Pier are parked near Mcdo Buendia. The fare is Php 177.00 for the aircon bus without comfort room and with comfort room, yes, the fare is just the same, you are lucky if you ride the bus with a comfort room. Travel time to Batangas Pier is 2 hours. So I suggest be there as early as 7:00 am, the bus leaves every 30 minutes or as soon as all seats are occupied.

There are many shipping lines going to Puerto Galera (Father and Son, Minolo, Galerian, FSL,
etc.) these boats will take you directly to Muelle Port or White Beach. The fare is Php 500.00 for a round-trip ticket and one-way is around Php 275.00. I suggest getting the round-trip ticket because it will be cheaper. Also, you have to pay Php 30.00 for the terminal fee.

Upon arrival in White Beach, you need to pay Php 50.00 for Environmental Fee.

There are tricycles to take you around in Puerto Galera. The fare will cost you around Php 100.00 to 150.00 for short distance.
