Though Puerto Galera is a relatively small town, it has many interesting and diverse things to do and is well worth a visit for any traveller to this region.

This coastal region offers great snorkelling and diving spots and the UNESCO Man and Biosphere Reserve offers some of the best coral reefs in the whole of Asia.

One of the most popular things to do while staying in hotels in Puerto Galera is to participate in local water sports. Sport junkies will be enchanted with the scuba diving here because of the unique ecosystems in the area. Diving shops in Puerto Galera offer beginner lessons for those who want to partake of other water sports available including windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, and snorkelling.

After a long day of diving or snorkelling, visitors can sample the numerous bars and restaurants that are dotted throughout this coastal town. Most foreign guests flock to the pristine sands of Sabang Beach while local tourists venture to the vibrant ambiance at White Beach.

Whilst strolling around this sleepy coastal town, travellers can choose an afternoon at the Excavation Museum, which is a stone’s throw from the Immaculate Conception Church. The museum is home to artefacts as well as antiques recovered from the municipality. These artefacts are clear evidence that Puerto Galera was a trading hub between Malay, China and other continents. The museum displays collections of Chinese and Siamese pottery dating back to the 15th century.

Ideal for trekkers seeking wildlife and challenging hikes, visitors must go and see Mt. Halcon. Covered in high-altitude forests and cut by pristine rivers, it is considered one of the best trekking trips in the area. The summit is often engulfed in clouds, but on a clear day, it boasts spectacular views.
