Puerto Galera : 4 hours Paradise away from Manila

s.jpg

Hi ! Welcome to my first ever travel blog ๐Ÿ™‚

Puerto Galera is just 3-4 hours away from Manila which is really nice and easy to go to when you want to escape from the busy and noisy City.

From Manila we rode a bus bound to Batangas port for about 2-3 hours depends on the traffic . Then from the Batangas Port we rode a ferry boat that is bound to Sabang port.

Puerto Galera is known for having a lot of beaches, and it took some research to pick the right beach to stay in. The obvious choices were Sabang and White Beach. Me and my bestfriend Samantha decided to stay in Sabang because of its famous nightlife and said to be not so crowded unlike the famous White Beach.

We stayed in Dahilig Resort which is 5-10 minutes away from the port. The rate for night in this Resort is very affordable. We stayed in a Economy Room for only 750/night. The staff there are very accommodating plus it has nice view of the ocean and boats.

This is the Rooms and the pool .

During our first night we planned to just rest after the tiring trip to the island, then go to the nightlife spot at night to experience it.

Before we go to club we decided to eat dinner somewhere near the shore. I forgot which restaurant but it was like inside a resort infront of the shore.

Unfortunately we weren’t able to go inside the clubs alone because to get in we need to have a guy that will accompany us inside so the bouncer will let us in. Some local guys volunteered to accompany us inside and just to return their kindness we just treat them some beers. But we didn’t enjoyed it much because the clubs there has lots of strippers and we think its just for guys who wants to have fun so we just decided to go back to the resort and just rest and prepare for our activities the next day.

These are some pictures inside the club.
