One of the most scenically spectacular tropical events is when your ferry enters the Batangas Channel into the natural anchorage of Puerto Galera (Port of Galleons), with white sand palm fringed beaches, with the jungle covered mountains rising in the distance.
Puerto Galera is the only bay in the Philippines to be listed by Club of the Most Beautiful Bays of the World The most well known beaches are Sabang and White Beach which are centers for resorts, bars, and restaurants.

The mountain range is generally unexplored, and is home to the spectacular Ponerosa Golf Club. Ethnic Mangyan communities live in the mountains, some with virtually no contact with the outside world.
