Puerto Galera is a town on the northeastern coast of Mindoro Island, Philippines. Puerto Galera itself is a fairly small town and not remarkably interesting, but almost all visitors pass through it because it has the ferry terminal, and some come into it for other facilities such as ATMs or supermarkets. However, the main tourist destinations are two beach areas nearby: Either of those is 20-minute (per trike) tricycle ride away. Either has a lot of tourist facilities — bars, restaurants, dive centers, souvenir places, etc. — spread along a lovely beach. Sabang is more developed and somewhat livelier, and has more diving and more girlie bars, White Beach quieter. See the linked articles for details.
Travellers bound for either beach will usually just say they are going to Puerto Galera as it hosts the ferry terminal (to Batangas) through which most people arrive.
