Popularly known as a tourist haven by the sea, Puerto Galera coast is 42km. long, consisting of irregular shorelines rimmed with dazzling white beaches, coconut plantations, and delightful scenery.
At the eastern side of the coast, crescents of white beaches are interspersed with limestone cliffs and escarpments that are penetrated by inland bays and coves. These numerous coves and water channels support a rich marine life, forming "non-reef coral communities". Whereas, its tube-like harbor with two natural entrances provides home to dozens of ships seeking safe anchorage.
