For thousands of years, Filipinos had lived in ingenious huts made out of the plants that grew abundantly around them.
We have recaptured the native flavor of traditional Philippine dwelling in our guest cottages. 10 Suite Rooms each room has a living room and bed room, 78 De Luxe Rooms most with sea-view, 8 Standard Rooms has no sea-view
There are four restaurants in Coco Beach alone. This comes as no surprise because in the Philippines, eating is a national passion!
Here at Coco Beach Island Resort, we've made dining into a new level of enjoyment.
We stop at nothing to help you celebrate the most important meal of the day. Our breakfast buffet is one of the best in the land, with fresh fruit cut for you right at the moment by our cook or waitress.

Puerto Galera is accessible by a 1.5 hour drive south from Manilla
to Batangas Pier and a 1.5 hr ferry ride from Batangas Pier to Puerto
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. Marcel Proust
Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living. Mary Ritter Beard
The traditional way of eating is with the hands, especially dry dishes such as inihaw or prito. The diner will take a bite of the main dish, then eat rice pressed together with his fingers.
This practice, known as kamayan, is rarely seen in urbanized areas. However, Filipinos tend to feel the spirit of kamayan when eating amidst nature during out of town trips, beach vacations, and town fiestas.
