This is one of my greatest moment when we visited the Tukuran Waterfalls. You need a buffalo ride and cross about 6 rivers to get to that small fall. Ms.Buffy whom I called the water buffalo has done a great job getting us there especially she is pregnant. But the trip is quite rewarding when you get at the end of it. I did not bring any bathers on but I have to try the nice water that runs fast from the falls. Really a great adventure..!

Considered to be the world’s 2nd largest single coral reef and the Philippines’ largest atoll, Apo Reef Natural Park (ARNP) sits in the middle of Mindoro Strait between Coron, Palawan and Occidental Mindoro. It is part of the small town of Sablayan. Frequently called “mini Tubbataha”, this site is a pelagic haven for divers seeking larger marine creatures like white tip sharks, gray reek sharks, hammerheads, manta rays, schools of jacks, barracudas, tunas to name a few. There is also a shallow wreck usually done for check out dives. There are 3 Islands in Apo Reef and there are no resorts hence most of the dives are on liveaboard boats coming from as far as Coron and Puerto Galera. A ranger station with a light house sits on the biggest island where one can view the entire reef, mangroves and rock formations. Good for photos.
Getting there: From Manila, take the Dimple Bus which goes directly to San Jose, Mindoro Occ. A fee of P900 includes the RoRo boat ride from Batangas to Mindoro. Travel time takes about 14 hours. Dimple bus stations are in Marikina, Cubao, and Sampaloc. Regular trips are available until I think about 7pm but best to check their website/FB page to be sure.
You can also book a Cebu Pac flight to San Jose albeit there is only 1 flight per day at 5:10am. Flight takes a little over an hour. From San Jose airport, it takes about an hour to get to the resorts which offer dive packages (Apo Reef Club and Pandan).
Fyi: As of Feb 2018, Apo Reef Sanctuary fee for local divers is Php2,380. Forigners pay about Php3,000. This in not included in the package rates given by the resort.
Popular dive sites include: Action Point, Ego Wall, Apo Menor, Aladin, Mabuti.

We had a very nice motorbike ride to this waterfall, the falls are beautiful. The restaurant was very good but the tables smelled bad, probably washed with a stagnant smelly cloth. The steps down to the second falls were built for giants, and the handrails were questionable with unfinished welds. The falls are very nice but the construction of the infrastructure was poorly managed. Be careful.

WB has everything a tourist needs. Snorkelling trips, parasailing, jetskis, rides on weird inflatable things. Anything you want to eat is right there being grilled up. It's a great place for families.

Pebble beach or aplyang munti is a quiet little haven. It is a far cry to the busy white beach. There is no sand here but pebbles. The water is a bit deep so make sure you watch over your kids.
Be there early since the nipa cottages that they have are very limited. We came here at around 8:30 am and it was perfect!
There are no restaurants within the area so better bring your own food/drinks.
There are two sari sari store there and a toilet but we did not see any bathrooms.It was not a concern for us since we have a tricycle to take us back to the our resort for us to rinse.
The water is amazingly clean! but beware there what we called them sea mosquitoes that tend to bite and can be very itchy.
The resort closes at 5pm.
The entrance fee is 10pesos and 200 pesos for the nipa hut

It's not the best beach in the area and at the time I went, the sea was choppy and no good for swimming or snorkelling. However, it's great for long walks down the shore and I'm not complaining!!!!

Mt.Malasimbo is one of the Mountains towering over the Beaches of Puerto Galera. It is the home of the indigenous Mangyan tribe. There is a small snaking road for vehicles on the mountain as well as unpaved roads for 4x4s, ATVS, dirtbikes, and motorsport enthusiasts. Mountaineers and climbers can trek to the summit in 4-5 hours.

Annoying place with all those vendors trying to give you hugely overpriced goods and services. 1500 pesos for a private jeepney, that's outrageous. Unfortunately no Uber taxis here. Most hotels are hard to find and the only way to get there is by foot.
Beach is nothing special and not suitable for swimming. Choose White Beach instead.
However, if you like scuba diving and stuff like that, this is your place to be.
