Looking for near manila and budget-friendly getaway? You can go to Puerto Galera in Oriental Mindoro. I've been here many times and tried different resorts.
The famous place in Puerto Galera is White Beach which most of the tourism ventures happen here such as, water activities and nightlife.
If you want a place to appreciate more the water creatures, you can go diving at the Sabang beach.
But if you want some "me time" or less crowded place so you can relax and unwind, you can go to Aninuan Beach. It is near to White Beach. So if you want a little bit of adventure, you can quickly go to White Beach.
