To get you thinking, here are 10 of the top Puerto Galera activities. If you stay at Badladz Adventure Resort, we can show you where to go to have the time of your life. Even if we don’t do it, we can show you where to find it 🙂
1. Go deep sea diving.
Explore the underwater world, including approximately 40 world-renowned dive sites around Puerto Galera. From beginners to advanced, the diving here is magnificent.
Ancient shipwrecks, stunning coral and beautiful fish are some of the things you will see while diving here.
2. Island and beach hopping.
Take off for a while. Go from beach to beach, island to island and finish with a barbecue and a party. This is one of the best Puerto Galera activities to do when you’re here.
If you’re thinking of partying, then you’ll have a great time here. Sabang and White Beach are filled with restaurants, bars, clubs and discos where you can drink and dance the night away.
4. Shoot paintballs in the jungle.
Storm through the jungle with a paintball gun in hand, shooting at the enemies in the trees. You’ll have to move and act fast here, otherwise you’ll end up with a painted face.
At the X-Treme Sports Philippines Adventure Park, you can shoot paintballs. On top of that, you can ride go karts, dune buggies, quad bikes and more. The adventure part is just 10 minutes walk from Badladz Adventure Resort on Muelle Pier.
5. Discover abandoned resorts.
Among Puerto Galera activities, there are a number of abandoned resorts that are very interesting to explore. Some of them are falling apart and are covered in vines while others have stood the test of time. You can walk around them and get a taste of the local history.
6. Be dazzled by marvellous views.
When the Puerto Galera weather is great (almost always), go for a walk on the road to Sabang during the day. Along the way, the jungle canopy stretches overhead and you’ll be afforded marvelous views of the islands and bays surrounding Puerto Galera.
Be sure to take your camera!
7. Play golf on top of a mountain.
At the Ponderosa Golf Course, play golf on top of a 2000 feet high mountain. Whether driving the ball or putting it into the hole, you’ll have incredible panoramic views of the entire Puerto Galera cove.
No gear? Don’t sweat – you can rent golfing gear at the course.
8. Watch the cockfights.
Every Sunday, make your way to the arena and experience the excitement of the cockfights. You can see this activity in Puerto Galera, or you can take the longer trip to Calapan for excellent shopping, great views and a fantastic day.
9. Swim in Tamaraw Falls.
Roughly 10 kilometers from Puerto Galera, Tamaraw Falls are well worth taking the time to visit. Pack lunch and eat a picnic while enjoying the beautiful surroundings. After lunch, take a refreshing swim in the natural pool.
10. Ride into the sunset on a motorcycle.
Rent a motorcycle from Badladz Adventure Resort and take off into the sunset. Explore the island on your own terms and go wherever you get the urge to go. Talk to the locals, seek out adventure and create the experience that you’ve dreamed of.
