Our first destination for our island hoping was the small cave. This cave is a space inside a gigantic rock, with holes on the side where the sea water pass through. The cool waters inside the cave give a relaxing feeling. Outside the cave, there were products for sale, such as shells, banana que, juices and other meryendas. One thing that captured my attention was the edible sea urchin, by the cave.

Another exciting part during our Puerto Galera escapade was snorkeling in crystal clear waters, with amazing underwater view. My Olympus Tough Underwater digital camera was a great help to capture the richness under. Swimming is not my forte, but I can handle myself in the water. That time, I was afraid to go deeper because every time I see plants on the sea bed, my brain automatically thinks that there is an ogre hiding from the sea weeds that will abduct me and bring to an extraordinary place. Photos below are amazing images showing the beautiful underwater of Puerto Galera.
