Why Puerto Galera Belongs to Most Crowded Destinations During Holy Week

One of the busiest periods in Puerto Galera is during the Holy Week where people take advantage of the four days off from work. For years now, it has been one of the idyllic destinations for local and foreign tourists who want to soak up under the sun.

Because of its proximity to Metro Manila, as compared to Boracay, Puerto Galera can be enjoyed even for an overnight stay. However, accommodation rates go rocket high since it’s peak season. Super peak, actually.

Aside from being closer to the metro, it’s kind of cheaper to go on vacation here than in most of the much coveted Holy Week destinations in the country as you won’t be spending huge chunk of your budget for airfare.

Holy Week in Puerto Galera

BUT, just like falling in line in airport terminals on a Holy Week, you can expect similar scene on the bus terminal going to Batangas, more so on the port. So you’ve got to have unlimited patience until you reach the infamous shores of Puerto Galera.

BUT, since it’s Holy Week, you have to share the entire stretch of White Beach with hundreds of beach-bumming people crowding the shoreline. If this isn’t your kind of beach escapade, Puerto Galera on Holy Week isn’t much of a bright idea.

BUT, for those who want some time to reflect and observe Holy Week traditions, you can still do so by visiting the Immaculate Conception Parish Church in Poblacion, Puerto Galera.

Whichever way we choose to spend Holy Week, take some time to say a little prayer and reflect on what the Lenten Season is meant for.
