Although we have tried to make this a good-looking web site, we are fully aware that this is a mere feeble attempt to reflect the true wonders of Puerto Galera. The Spanish called the island "Gold Mine" and because there was not much gold to be found, they must have meant its natural beauty. Only looking at this web site without ever visiting the island could be one of those mistakes you might regret for the rest of your life!
