We were supposed to go to Puerto Galera in April of this year but because of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan that time, my relatives backed out. I could no longer refund the down payment for the rooms I reserved. The caretaker of the resort asked me to just reschedule our trip and I just thought it would be better if we go in November just in time for Ykaie’s birthday. We stayed at Villa Bienvenida Beach Resort ( aka HSL Beach Resort) which was formerly known as Lagundian Beach Resort. Did I confuse you? lol! When I reserved for our rooms it was still HSL/Lagundian so I was surprised to see they changed the name of the resort. Anyway, I got lots of pictures to share that’s why I made 3 posts about our Puerto Galera getaway.
Coffee break at dreamwave restaurant
On our way to Tamaraw Beach Resort -We decided to go to the neighboring resort which was about 10 minute walk from White beach. We had to climb up more or less 70 steps before reaching this road. The stairs were a bit steep!
Yay! We made it!! Ready… set… pose!
White beach is definitely more bigger than Tamaraw beach resort but it is a much peaceful place!
The resort has a playground for kids.
There’s no entrance fee coming here. You can roam around and take pictures to your heart’s desire just like what we did. lol!
Going through the boulders is the quickest way to get to tamarraw beach from white beach but since we got 2 kids in tow, we chose to take the road path
On our last day, we had lunch at Pizerria Ristorante Ciao Italia before heading back home. Notice the stairs to our right? That was where we climbed up going to Tamarraw beach and to our left was the route going through the boulders.
Waiting for our food
The owner is Italian who makes good pizza!
Food here is expensive but the place has a nice view of the beach.
Going home-Boat ride takes 1 1/2 hrs from White Beach to Batanggas Port. We paid Php530 for a roundtrip transfer including the terminal fee and environmental fee.
