    Expert Navigation

    Floating Bar, Sabang Beach...

    Favorite thing: The guides at Mabuhay divers in Small La Laguna seem to have this underwater navigation thing all worked out. Twice on the last dive of the day, we surfaced directly adjacent to the floating bar off Sabang beach.... You could smell the cold beers on tap before you even pull the regulator from your mouth....

    Cant beat that.....

    Gas Out Day.....

    Paying Homage to San Miguel...

    Favorite thing: What to do in PG on no-dive days ?? Good Question..... well the beach is narrow and the beers are cheap, so best to grab some of the precious waterfront real estate, and sit back with a San Miguel or two... (the patron saint of land locked divers....)

    Maybe use a few of the empties to build a little sand "temple" in his honour to pass the day away...

    White Sand Beach

    by strawby Written Apr 11, 2007

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I love Puerto Galera! it's like mini-boracay..white sand, cool wavy waters and very friendly people...it's near Manila so you can always plan of going there quite often..Going there to relax and enjoy the view is just amazing =]

    Fondest memory: We'll ive only been to Puerto once, but i'll definitely recommend this place especially to my fellow Manilenios who's somehow burdened with the fast life of the city..Puerto Galera is definitely worth the trip :)

    Vendors and women offering massage on the beach

    Massage at the beach

    Fondest memory: When you're in White beach, expect people to offer you wrist/ankle bands and locals offering you massage. Some could be annoying because some of them would force you to say yes. So be ready to say 'No' hundred times in a day if you don't like massage. You can use 'Hindi Po' meaning 'No', Po is what we affix to be polite.

    Waiting time at restaurants

    by yann.ng Updated Feb 19, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: Be prepared to wait for at least 15 to 20 minutes before your order will be served. As we were travelling in a group, at times we waited 45 minutes before anyone of us are served our meals.

    After 1-2 days of experience at various restaurants, we've learnt to takeaway some food from the roadside stalls before we go to the restaurants to order our food. So we hungry divers will not be starving or over-starved by the time our food arrives.

    My Second Bora

    by sherleh Updated Apr 8, 2009

    Favorite thing: The light colored sand is nice to look with the colorful pebbles and the clear waters. If you don't feel like seeing a lot of people but want to stay at White Beach, then you can swim at the left most side of White Beach, coz it is more quiet there. I highly recommend the beachside massage!

    Fondest memory: Actually, I miss the serenity and simplicity of Muelle Port.
