DIY Travel Guide: Accommodation, itinerary and places to see when planning a trip to Bamboo House Beach Lodge and Restaurant
Best things to do in Puerto Galera
Talipanan, Puerto Galera, Oriental Mindoro
April 2012. By the second week of March, we we’re on the lookout for beach resorts via agoda.com at Puerto Galera with an exemption to White Beach area to avoid the crowded and spoiled beach. First stop was El Canonero, rooms were fully booked and they forwarded us to Bamboo House Beach Lodge and Restaurant, an adjacent resort. Where we can still use the facilities of El Canonero. We managed to book a two-twin bed air-conditioned room good for 3-4 pax for 3D/2N accommodation at around PhP5,600. After 3 days, we needed to book another two-twin beds, and the accommodation rate went to PhP7,000 ++ making way for the official summer headlines. Still a very reasonable rate with serene surroundings and fine beachfront.

Very cool place, the lodge uses Filipino-themed interiors with bamboo and “banig” materials. The rooms have comfort rooms, sink, cable TV and a veranda-type to spend a picnic or order food direct from Bamboo House Beach resort.
Although this is not my first time to spend summer in Puerto Galera, from Batangas pier, bookers will usually say they have direct boats bound for Talipanan but in reality it goes direct to White Beach. From there, a multi-cab will bring you to Talipanan free of charge courtesy of Bamboo Beach House. Regular rates of tricycle rides from the White Beach to Talipanan and vice-versa ranges from 100 to 200 depending on how good you haggle around with the locals. 🙂
My Oneill board short has the same visual perception from our room’s bed linens 🙂

Aside from swimming and chilling all day, we went on a mountain trekking to view the virgin forest of Talipanan Falls along the Mangyan Village and did an island hopping from Ballatero to San Antonio with exciting water activities such as: view of the finest beaches, snorkeling areas, dive sites, fish feeding, etc.
The food is great, fresh, and affordable…
Hop in, if your looking for alternative beach fronts, try the Talipanan and Aninuan areas.
