Puerto Galera can be a destination for a day. Day trip would mean riding a bus that will take you to Batangas Pier by 6am. Ride a ferry to Puerto Galera and in less than 2 hours, you’ll find yourself getting that 10 am tan. You don’t have to book yourself in a cottage. You just have to find a good restaurant for lunch and mirienda. You can pay a few pesos to use toilets in nearby resorts. You and the barkada can hire a banca for less than 1,000 pesos to tour you around the snorkeling sights. Get back to the beach by 3pm, buy some souvenirs and head for the ferryboats by 4pm. By 6pm you’ll find yourself back in Batangas Pier and headed for home. The next day you wake up super refreshed, stress free and tan burned. Bring 3,000 pesos and live the life of the day tripper and famous. The bigger the barkada, the cheaper it becomes!
