Upon arrival at the airport from Hong Kong (from Sydney), I grabbed the overnight bag I had previously stuffed items into for another trip -- Puerto Galera in Mindoro.
I have never been to Puerto Galera. I only heard about it from my friend Raphy Kiefer who frequents the place. But I guess he goes to another island, not Coco Beach where my officemates and I stayed for a few days.
The ferry ride to the island was troublesome. We caught the afternoon trip in a mid-size vessel that I thought would surrender to the strong waves. Pretty scary for a non-swimmer huh!
At least I was comforted by the fact that in a week's time, I was able to travel by land, air, and sea. Hehe. ;-)
I didnt have much time to check out the shores of Coco Beach as we were busy trekking but my impression is that it is coral-filled. It was probably better to hang out by the pool (note: non-swimmer) next time I find myself there.
You will probably notice some "pageant" photos in this album. There was a unique contest the organisers held ; the photos will reveal the creativity of the people behind the work!
