     Like the rest of the Philippines, Puerto Galera has Summer all year round. This means that it is not getting cold
according to Western ideas. There is not winter. However there are two distinct seasons the Habagat and Amihan, or
the Western and Eastern Monsoon. Monsoon does not mean perpetual rain, nor does it mean perpetual wind. It is only
an indication for the direction where the wind blows from. Habagat winds that blow from the east blow during the so-
called typhoon season. Typhoons roughly occur between May and November. Not all typhoons cross the Philippines,
but they can effect the whole or a part of the country. By clicking the above "Typhoon 2000" icon you will be able to
find the latest updates. During the Habagat the winds and the the curent comes from the West, which can result in
waves at the western beaches of Puerto Galera.
 
 
   
     From about November till March the Amihan Monsoon wind blows from the East. There are no typhoons during the
Amihan season, because the temperature is usually not higher than 28 degrees Celsius and in order for a typhoon to
sustain itself higher temperatures are needed. Because of the eastern winds, the eastern part of Puetro Galera has
wavy seas. Naturally the fewer the waves, the better the visibility during diving or snorkeling and Puerto Galera boasts
plenty of great dive spots, making diving all year round is possible.
   
     Although Puerto Galera is part of the UNESCO protected marine reserve this does not mean that there are no major
problems. Global warming does not really have a direct effect yet to our opinion, but it is unlikely that Puerto Galera
will be able to escape from the changing weather patterns we are witnessing all over the world.
   
     Trash can be a serious problem as well. Everybody who takes a ferry or gets on a ship once in a while will notice
that trash is thrown in the sea. Although this should not happen, ships are not the main reason for the trash that
washes on our beaches. The culprit can be found on land. Unfortunately, many people do not realize what happens to
the trash they just discard in their streets. It does not stay there till some more environmentally friendly person picks it
up, the rain washes it into gutters, storm drains , and creeks. From there it washes into rivers, the sea and then on the
beach where you would like to swim, causing you to complain to the hotel/resort staff and makes you wonder why the
authorities don't do more to resolve this problem. Whether you are a believer in global warming or not it is obvious
that plastic and other trash on the beaches is something nobody likes to see. We hope that next time you feel the urge
to throw trash on the street in your city you will do the right thing and keep our beaches clean.
