if you're already tired of doing nothing at the beach, try climbing the mountain at the back of whitebeach, it may not be an easy one but it's definitely worth the try. warning though, there are a lot of leeches on some part of the trail so be alert and have a rubbing alcohol ready.
beach hopping via turbo charged tricycle!!
We went beach hopping with Kuya Marlon our F1 tricycle driver/tour guide/ladiesman. We went to at least 5 different beaches in galera in 1 day. Not your typical lounging around white beach and bar crunching at night. :) I've never taken pictures of beaches like these before. Simply Amazing!
On the way back from Big Lalaguna Beach just before going down the steps, we saw another path that leads up to the hill. Decided to climb up to see what's up there.
After some sweating in the hot sun, we were rewarded by magnificent views of the sea and the beaches.
Spotted this beach when we were diving in front of it. Was not sure how to get there without a boat. Then after lunch at Small Lalaguna beach, we walked towards the left (if you're facing the sea) towards the Red Sun Resort.
There is a path and a flight of steps to climb, past some houses surrounded by trees you'll come to the beach.
It's a much bigger beach and buildings do not crowd the water edge. It's also cleaner and less crowded.
A good place to get a sun tan by the beach without everybody walking past you.
Tip for all non-divers that wish to relax : try to visit White Beach during Easter, to party with filipinos on the beach, and stay over on Aninuan beach (5 min walk), where tha atmosphere is clam and laid back. This is the perfect place.
Close to White Beach is a reptile farm, with all manner of snakes and a few crocs.
The owner is German and they have lots of information in English. You'll need to take a scooter to get here though.
