Puerto Galera's Top 30 Diving Sites

diving guide to puerto galera mindoro


Puerto Galera is one of the most famous beach destinations near Manila because it is just 3-4 hours away from the metro. Aside from swimming, Puerto Galera is famous as a world-class diving site. As a matter of fact, Puerto Galera was named in 2005 as the Most Beautiful Bay by the Paris-based Les Plus Belles Baies Du Monde or the Most Beautiful Bays in the World Club.

While I admit the Puerto Galera 13 years ago is not as beautiful as now in terms of sanitation and ambiance, I still see a steady influx of local and international tourists coming here for diving purposes. I am also very happy to tell you that the local government of Puerto Galera is doing really serious projects to clean its beaches. I have seen big banners about building sewerage collection and treatment plant projects that cost Php 90 million each for 3 major beaches in Puerto Galera.
