LOOK: This Beautiful Resort Is Tucked Somewhere in Mindoro


There is more to Mindoro than just Puerto Galera.

Away from the bustling beach scene of Galera is Grace Island. It was developed into a resort, which makes it a place to go to if you want to find some peace and quiet. Of course, it is also a hideaway for relaxation.


Surrounding the island, built on top of the water are floating cottages. The cottages are interconnected by wooden bridges so you can easily move from one point to another. Staying on the cottages give an amazing view of the sea and the nearby Ambulong Island.


There are various services and amenities on the island. These include:

  • Bird Sanctuary
  • Marine Sanctuary
  • Island Hopping
  • Caving
  • Mountain Trekking
  • Forest Park
