Activities & excursions - Squares Beachfront Apartments in Puerto Galera


Mindoro offers a wealth of beautiful scenery and places to visit many of which are not widely publicised and still waiting to be explored. We are happy to advise, assist or arrange day tripping to suit your needs and numbers if you have time. Some of the places well worth a visit are listed here:

Tukuran Hanging Bridge and River Swimming Pool:

 

This is a real Mangyan Village on the lower slopes of Mt Halcon and it is interesting to see some of the contrasts between life in this remote and idyllic place and mainstream Philippines. From the village you can walk across the hanging bridge to the river pools which are good for swimming and picnics.

Please take no photos of the Mangyan because the people are a bit reserved and embarrassed when it comes to photos. It takes about one and a half hours to get there. Mt. Halcon's height is 2,586 metres (8,484 ft) makes it the 18th highest peak in the Philippines.

Simbahang Bato (stone church at Bato) - Baranagay Bancuro:

Oriental Mindoro is surprisingly rich in history for anyone with a real interest in history or archaeology. This is one of the oldest buildings in Philippines and remains hidden away and pretty much forgotten. It was likely to have been built before Christianisation got started in Luzon, most probably by Portuguese settlers from the earlier settlements to the south in present day Indonesia and might even therefore predate the existence of the Republic of the Philippines. Takes about 2 hours to motor there. More info...

Talipanan Mangyan Village:

Village to resettle indigenous hill tribe people. You can also walk through the forest for about half hour to see the waterfalls. It takes only half an hour to drive there.
