- Optional Activities
- There are not many places left in the world where you can have a whole beach to yourself. Kayaking, hiking, swimming and snorkeling add to the list of non-diving activities. Some of the best views are from Ponderosa, a nine-hole golf course 500 meters up a near-by mountain or ride a local jeepney to the waterfalls and Hidden Paradise and enjoy a spectacular day out.
Below are a couple of examples of optional tours available:
The Mangyans are the aborigines of Mindoro. These "nomads of nature" used to travel in entire families from one place to another by foot, but settled years ago in the mountains. You will witness their daily life of primitive survival.
Located just 14 km from Puerto Galera and near the village of Villaflor. Taste the sweet natural spring water as you enjoy the outstanding scenery, the old growth forest, and beautiful rock formations below the waterfall. Bathe in the pools, bask in the sun, and just relax.
Tukuran or Hidden Paradise
A 45 minute jeepney ride from the town of Puerto Galera will take you to the four rivers, where you will have to continue by foot or ox-cart to get to the falls. An amazing place where the waterfalls have had thousands of years to carve and shape the surrounding rocky landscape into pools and small falls.
- Well what can I say, Atlantis Puerto Galera and Atlantis Dumaguete totally exceeded my expectations! I felt a genuine warm welcome on arrival at both of these resorts, that continued throughout my stay. The teams go out of their way to make sure you get the absolute best from your holiday, from the rooms, to the food (ohhh the food) to the dive operation I just couldn't fault them. They call the Philippines "The land of smiles" they're not wrong there.
