Aside from Scuba Diving, there are many fun activities available in Puerto Galera and the surrounding areas. There is something for everyone, whether you are looking for relaxing experiences, or looking for excitement and adventure.
Below are some of the great activities available to you. Our friendly staff will be happy to arrange any of these activities for you while you are here.
Zip Line Rides
Experience the thrill of riding a 610 meter zipline from Ponderosa to Green Mountain.
Enjoy the breathtaking views of the Puerto Galera peninsula all the way out to Verde Island and beyond, as well as the thrill of the adrenaline rush as you swoop down the zipline over the jungle canopy.
Ponderosa Golf Club
The Ponderosa Golf Club is just 20 minutes out of the town proper and spectacularly perched on a mountain side over looking Puerto Galera 2,000 feet above sea level. Essentially it is a 9 hole par 3 course with attitude and a compelling experience enjoyed by both serious and fun golfers alike.
Most 9 hole par 3 courses are not really worth the effort for any serious golfer worth their salt, but Ponderosa is the exception to the rule. There may be no long drives down tree-lined fairways, but Ponderosa offers a serious challenge to any golfer’s short game with verdant jungle pushing in on all sides and sweeping panoramasover the beaches and bays of Puerto Galera, across the Verde Island Passage and the surrounding islands all the way to mountains and rim of Taal volcano on Luzon.
Situated 14km outside of Puerto Galera, Tamaraw Falls is a series of cascades culminating in a 460-foot plunge into a nice man made pool where children can swim. There is also a challenging hiking trail that tracks along the river as it descends through the mountain. A modest entrance fee allows access to a picnic area. The falls are quite small, but still very beautiful.
Hidden Paradise is a very beautiful, alluring, and tranquil place that seems to be perfect. This is definitely not an adventure and experience to be missed! You can even ride an ox cart down the river to the swimming pool at the base of the small waterfalls.
Bikini Floating Bar
Visit the Bikini Floating bar in Sabang Bay for a party with a difference! Catch the shuttle boat from Sabang Beach to the newly refurbished floating bar. Cold drinks, friendly staff and incredible views! What more could you ask for?
The perfect place to have a cocktail and watch the beautiful sunsets!
White Beach is one of the most famous destinations in Puerto Galera. A 1.6km wide beach of pristine, soft white sand. Many bars, restaurants, souvenier stalls and tattoo parlours, as well as plenty of things do such as volleyball, water-skiing, jetskis, parasailing, or just relax on the beach and get a great holiday tan!
If a lot of speed and a fair amount of mud is what you are after, then you need to strap yourself into one of our zippy little 150cc Mud Karts and hit the X-Treme Sports Philippines Off-Road Adventure Track!
Our track was recently extended to over 3 times it’s original length and has lots of obstacles and water crossings to get your heart rate going! If you like to drive fast, be prepared to be covered head-to-toe in mud! But don’t worry, we have shower facilities on the premises, but you should probably think about bringing a change of clothes.
ATV Off Road Track
Our 150cc ATV’s (All Terrain Vehicles) are fast and more fun than you can shake a stick at! Our specially design ATV Adventure Track is incredible fun, whether you want to take it fast or slow.
Our adventure track winds it’s way through the lush tropical jungle, typical of Puerto Galera, and provides plenty of opportunities to open up the throttle and get covered in mud!
We have shower facilities on the premises, and would suggest bringing a change of clothes if you plan on riding hard!
If you haven’t experienced a paintball war before, you won’t believe how much fun it can be, and how much it can get the heart pumping!
All you need is at least one friend to be your “enemy” and you’re ready to go. We’ll outfit you with top quality protective gear and rapid fire guns then its up to you. Puerto Galera’s lush tropical jungle makes for a paintball experience you won’t soon forget. A safe but adrenaline pumping day the whole family can enjoy!
