(Continued from Part 1) The following day was a total opposite of the day before: it begun with rains and for the most part cloudy. Just as when I was seriously considering running barefoot on the beach!
The good thing about our second day, a Sunday, is that most of the local tourists were leaving so the island was much less crowded.
Despite the gloomy weather and many tourists leaving, beach activities continue… I could get used to this 🙂
The rest of the afternoon was just gloomy so there wasn’t even a slight chance seeing another beautiful sunset.
Even with less tourists, Sunday night life in Puerto Galera remains alive…
Monday, our last day in Puerto Galera. It’s a must that I be able to run this beach! I was quite fortunate that on our third day, the sun is back!
This recent trip made me appreciate Puerto Galera more: the beach was good, the waters were really clean, and accommodations were quite cheap. I do wish though that there were more food choices as the options were really limited along white beach, but in fairness “unlimited rice” bundles are pretty common.
Speaking of wishes, I do wish that we have more responsible tourists flocking our beaches, not just in Puerto Galera, but everywhere. I just really hate it when I saw cigarette butts, liquor bottles, plastic cups, and all other trash left behind by tourists on the beach. These junks may cause deaths to creatures that may mistake them for food, and it just destroys the beauty of nature. We don’t want to see Puerto Galera looking like Manila Bay today so hopefully we be responsible in disposing of our trash properly. We could all enjoy nature without harming her. So to those who are cleaning the beaches and looking after these tourists, thank you very much!
Thank you very much Puerto Galera for a great time! I hope it doesn’t take me as many years to return, and hope to see you with more developments in the future! Hope you stay clean and beautiful! Until we meet again!
