The locals call this place Long Beach because of the long stretch of white sand found in this area. This is the perfect tourist spot in Puerto Galera for those who want a secluded spot making it more likely you’ll have the beach to yourself, especially during low season.

Another cool destination is Bayanan Beach. Same as the Long Beach, Bayanan Beach is also popular because of its long beach. This beach is away from crowded beaches also so it’s a perfect place for you to relax, get some vitamin D from the sun and enjoy the calmness of the waters.
