The Beaches

The majority ofrepparttar resorts are centered aroundrepparttar 143527 beaches of Sabang, Small La Laguna and Big la Laguna. Sabang is where most ofrepparttar 143528 action is, discos, pubs, restaurants and lots of accommodation. The next beach along is Small La Laguna which has more accommodation andrepparttar 143529 beach is quite nice. Make sure you stop off atrepparttar 143530 Point Bar which separates Sabang from Small La Laguna Beachrepparttar 143531 view is outstanding. Moving further away from Sabang you come to, in my opinion,repparttar 143532 pick ofrepparttar 143533 beaches, Big La Laguna Beach. The beach here is beautiful and it a lot quieter than Sabang, with some superior accommodation.

What to do in Puerto Galera?

The main focus here isrepparttar 143534 water. Scuba diving and snorkeling arerepparttar 143535 number one pursuits. The scuba diving is first class. There is no swell so swimming is safe, as are other water activities, sailing, windsurfing and kayaking.

Do try and get up to Ponderosa Golf Club for some jungle golf, lots of fun. Trekking is also available and do combinerepparttar 143536 trek to visit a Mangyan Village. Or you can just curl up onrepparttar 143537 beach with a good book!

Back to Reality

Pondering over my icy cold San Miguel, my first two week stay in these enchanted islands left me relaxed and ready to get back intorepparttar 143538 rat race of modern society. My first trip seemed like years ago, but I have visited and lived in this wonderful country on and off for a decade.
