The center of Puerto Galera has numerous restaurants and inns, plus a thriving t-shirt and flour-sack clothing industry. Other attrractions are the small museum in the compound of the Catholic Church which displays valuable Chinese artifacts and porcelain dishes excavated from nearby Bayanan, and an impresive collection of shells. The marble Cross at Muelle is a landmark in memory of the crew of a Spanish warship which sank in 1879.
For the more adventurous traveler, the hinterland of Puerto Galera offers some interesting attractions. You can visit a Mangyan settlement located in the mountains, approximately 1 km behind White Beach. Look for gold with the locals in the river near Dalungan, about 6 kms from Puerto Galera towards Calapan. After visiting the river continue for another 9 kms towards Calapan and visit Tamaraw Falls, the largest waterfall in the province with a natural swimming pool at its base. Another worthwhile place to visit is the Ponderosa Golf and Country Club located at about 600 metres above sea level and 5 kilometers from the village of Minolo. There is a tremendous view of Puerto Galera and surroundings. To reach Ponderosa you can either take a one and a half hour hike, or transport can be requested at the Ponderosa pick-up station in Minolo.

We had a Family Deluxe House, house and view were excellent. Service family did a great job, very friendly and helpful. Coco Beach is convenient for couples, families as well as seniors. On the one hand it offers a lot of different activities in- and outdoors, on the other you can perfectly relax when looking for silence and peace.
Three tiny things I have to criticize - 1. The beach is clean but very stoney and there are quite a few jelly fish. We found it better to swim in the pool than in the ocean, a pity. 2. Whether the waiters are just slow or they might have been overloaded - waited quite long for one to come along. 3. They don't have typical Tagalog dessert on the Menu, like Halo-Halo, Cassava, etc.
But all in all Coco Beach is one of the best places in the Philippines.
