Summer Getaway at Talipanan Beach x Dermplus Sunscreen

The Philippines is such a beautiful country and it's best to travel and explore it when we are still young and we can still endure long travels and walks.
I have been to White Beach Puerto Galera three times already and after 9 years I set foot again in Mindoro. Yup! it's been a long time since I last visited Puerto Galera and I am thankful that there was an opportunity for me to travel again. 


Puerto Galera Mindoro is about 3 hours away from Manila. 

  • Manila to Batangas port is 2 hours drive depending on the traffic in South Expressway and in Batangas proper. Batangas Port to Puerto Galera is 1 hour to 1.5-hour boat ride.
    • Manila to Batangas fare is 165 php/4USD. DLTB Bus or Jam Liner (Gil Puyat LRT Station)
    • Batangas Port to Puerto Galera fare is 500php/12USD roundtrip (any shipping line)

We arrive at Talipanan Beach before lunch and the weather is perfect and I was shocked because it's almost the same white beach sand like in White Beach but less crowd, less beach hotel, and accommodations and more time to relax and unwind for 3 days during Holy Week Vacay. Tourist here is mostly foreigners and few locals, which I liked the most. This will be my 2nd time to be away with my kid for 3 days (first was when we went to Cebu 2 years ago). And thank God I survived it without crying and missing my kid so badly. For 3 days I was able to unwind, relaxed my mind and be able to see and explore the beauty of Talipanan beach - the simple life here and watched the locals (kids) are playing freely at the beach and see some foreigner with their dogs as well (so cute!)

And let's not forget to protect our skin from harmful sun rays by using Dermplus Sunscreen Lotion with right SPF. It has different variations of SPF - SPF 24, 30 and even up to 80 SPF, how cool is that? We don't have to worry now that we'll suffer from sunburns and chapped lips, yes you heard it right! some of Dermplus sunscreen lotions can be applied to the face and even our sensitive lips.

  2. It's been awhile since I last visited Mindoro. Two years ago, when I embarked on a RORO from Manila to Bacolod, Mindoro was part of the route, but I never had the chance to enjoy the beach. Now that I am back in the Visayas, I take advantage of the proximity of the other islands and other beaches here. :-)

  3. Wow - what a beautiful landscape. And a great getaway idea, I am sure. I wish I was there right now!

  4. I lived in the Philippines for 13 years and I never get tired or surprised with the country's beauty. There are so many hidden spots all around the country. After all, there are over 7,000+ islands, right? lol
