Mindoro Island in Southern Luzon is divided into two provinces: Oriental Mindoro on the eastern side and Occidental Mindoro on the western side.
Oriental Mindoro is “in the map” because of Puerto Galera and its many beaches. In fact, in 2004, Puerto Galera was voted as a member of UNESCO-affiliated “The Club of the Most Beautiful Bays in the World”.
Occidental Mindoro, on the other hand, is “on the radar” because of Apo Reef. However, for those who do not dive (but even for those who dive) and are looking for that silent and serene island escape, Occidental Mindoro may prove to be a different option or an additional alternative to the usual island destinations.
