The name Puerto Galera is Spanish for “Port of the Galleons.” For centuries, trading vessels would drop the anchor off the shores of this place on the northeastern coast of Mindoro Island. Puerto Galera is well known for its numerous scuba diving spots; the area was designated a Man and Biosphere Reserve of UNESCO in 1973 and has some of the most diverse coral reef diving in Asia located at the very heart of the ‘Coral Triangle’.
