White Sand of Puerto Galera


Puerto Galera is a 1 hour and a half bus or car trip from manila to Batangas then 1-2 hour ferry boat ride to reach Puerto Galera
Bus companies ply the route Manila-Batangas(Pier) are available from the following stations in Metro Manila:
  • JAM and ALPS Transit from Buendia Avenue
  • JAM Transit from Plaza Lawton
  • JAM/TriTan/ ALPS in Cubao and Kamuning
Upon arrival in Batangas(Pier), there are ferries and outrigger boats going to Puerto Galera. Please check at the terminal counters for the schedule of departures. The timetable for the ferries and outrigger boats changes quite frequently, so it is advisable to phone them for confirmation but they usually leave Batangas Pier at every thirty minutes or hour intervals.
If you bring your own vehicle, the only regular car roll on-roll off (RO-RO) ferry directly to Puerto Galera is the Montenegro Shipping Line from Terminal 1, leaving Batangas Pier 7:00 A.M. and 12:00 Noon and departs from Puerto Galera (Balatero Pier) at 10:00 A.M. and 5:30 P.M.. The ferry can hold only 6-10 vehicles, it is advisable to be at the Port as early as possible to reserve as they do not accept prior reservations. The other option to reach Puerto Galera would be with the regular, bigger ca ferries going to Calapan. The ferry leaves every two hours, even during night time. The distance from Calapan to Puerto Galera is about 51 kilometers and takes about one and a half hour drive.
If you are leaving your car in Batangas Pier there are parking spaces available both inside and outside the pier along the highway and the charges are reasonable.
Upon reaching Puerto Galera, there are several ways to travel- by tricycle, jeepneys or outrigger boats. Fares are usually posted on billboards or inside the vehicle.
Travel at your own leisure, hop from one island to another or trek the rainforest and enjoy the beauty of PUERTO GALERA, MABUHAY!
Multicabs, jeepneys and tricycles are the most common form of public transport. These vehicles can also be rented for special trips to tourist destinations or other points of interest. Motorized boats can also be chartered for island-hopping or trips to various resorts. Bring your cameras.
