Puerto Galera Series Part II

Hey guys, it’s almost weekend again! Where are you off to this time? Summer is almost at an end so may I suggest that we all try to enjoy the remaining weekends ahead? Yes? Great!  One of the resorts I’d like to suggest  is Coco Beach in Sabang, Puerto Galera. 

For shuttle and boat services contact their office because they use a different route as compared to what the regular boats use in going to White Beach. Usually, meeting place is in Manila Hotel very early in the morning. Their very own coaster or van will come pick you up and bring you to a more private pier near Batangas port in just 2 hours or so depending on traffic . 

Then their very own boat will cross the choppy waters of Mindoro and in another 30-45 minutes you’ll find yourselves docking at their wonderful beach, forgetting about all the worries the city life usually brings. In terms of the resort’s ambience, the cottages and the stuff you can do, this place is fantastic! They even have their own soap and coconut oil factory which they sell at very affordable prices and they produce their own water. 

They also have a game room for pool, darts and videoke and TV room with cable, which you can enjoy with your family and friends. However, there was a moment when their staff didn’t deliver their services so well that I had to throw a fit just to get their attention. But that was before (year 2004 to be exact). 

Other than that, even when we had to climb 200 steps just to reach our cottage, even when we had no choice but to experience brownouts at certain times to conserve water and electricity and  and even if we spent around Php 8,000 ++ for our cottage for a 3 days/2 nights stay which already included welcome drinks, lunch upon arrival, breakfasts, toiletries, picnic lunches, island hopping and banana boat rides, I guess they were all worth it…
