Welcome to Mindoro
Most visitors head to the dive resorts around Puerto Galera on the north coast, but there is much more to Mindoro. If you prefer remote to resort, venture into Mindoro Occidental, where virtually tourist-free Sablayan, jumping-off point for the pristine dive mecca of Apo Reef, awaits. Improvements to roads are making this once hard-to-reach province more accessible than ever.
Mindoro’s south coast has excellent island-hopping, while in the mountainous interior you can hike to remote villages populated by the indigenous Mangyan tribespeople.
