One of the Philippines oldest marine sanctuaries, Puerto Galera is breathtakingly beautiful both above and below its calm, clear waters, Below, its Kaleidoscope of colourful corals and marine life, and above, a spectacular vista set against cloud-shrouded mountains, a haven for divers, yachtsmen, fisherman and nature lovers alike.
Puerto is a Resort Town located in the north-eastern shoreline of Oriental
Mindoro. lt is the eastern half of the island of Mindoro, an island
which is the third largest in the Philippine archipelago. The island
is south-west of Metro Manila. Puerto Galera itself is about seventy
(70) statute miles away from Metro Manila, and can either be reached
by seacraft straight from Manila, or by land transportation from Manila
to Batangas City (100 kms), and by ferryboat onwards to Puerto Galera.
The land travel takes between one and a half to two hours ride depending
on the traffic situation, while the connecting boat ride takes either
forty minutes or one and a half hours depending on the ferryboat taken.
To travel is to take a journey into yourself. Danny Kaye
There comes a moment on a journey when something sweet, something irresistible and charming as wine raised to thirsty lips, wells up in the travellers being. Patrick MacGill
