Puerto Galera Island
Puerto Galera was discovered by the Spaniards in the early 16th century as a safe haven for their trade ships during storms and typhoons.
A visit to the local Museum with it's impressive collection of artifacts located near the church in Puerto Galera will verify the rich culture and history of this island.

Puerto Galera Travel Tips & General Information
BAREFOOT IN THE BEACH
The code in Boracay is strictly informal.
There is an undeniable easy atmosphere in Boracay where walking barefoot than shod is the rule rather than the exception. White Beach is so, soooo fine, it feels like treading on miles of baby powder! No wonder, even swinging discos have the beach for a floor, giving dance a new twist. There are no hang-ups either in this island. At daytime, tourists having a soothing massage under the shade of a coconut tree beside the shoreline is a common sight. And from dusk to dawn, Boracay turns into one big party place where everyone is welcome to join in...But first, let's toast that sunset cocktail!
Diversions are certainly no problem in this tropical eden with leisure activities calendared throughout the year and amenities offered by some 350 tourist establishments.
