    PUERTO GALERA, MINDORO :
    Best of the Islands Philippines


    Puerto Galera has a very rugged topography. The land is generally mountainous and is crisscrossed by numerous streams and rivers. Back by the Cabarian Ridge and the 680-meter high pyramidical Mt. Malasimbo, its 35.25 km.-long hilly landmass extends towards the sea and spreads out to a maximum of 13.4 across.

    Three mountain ranges covering a total of 11.755 sqm. rise above Puerto Galera's coastal barangays: Mt. Alinbayan in Barangay Balatero, Mt. Talipanan in Barangays Aninuan and San Isidro, and Mt. Malasimbo in Barangay Aninuan. These mountains reach peak elevations of 1,400 meters above sea level and are home to rare animals such as deers, wild boars, monkeys and even the endangered tamaraw (a local buffalo endemic to Mindoro; bubalus mindorensis).

    Likewise, its numerous mountain springs provide natural habitats to orchid varities such as the tawa-tawa, tiger orchid, and mariposa.

    Popularly known as the tourist haven by the sea, Puerto Galera's coast is 42 km. long, consisting of irregular shorelines rimmed with dazzling white beaches, coconut plantations, and delightful scenery. At the eastern side of the coast, crescents of white beaches are interspersed with limestone cliffs and escarpments that are penetrated by inland bays and coves. These numerous coves and water channels support a rich marine life, forming "non-reef coral communities". Whereas, its tube-like harbor with two natural entrances provide home to dozens of ships seeking safe anchorage.

    The Bay of Puerto Galera has a total area of 4.2 sqm. It is framed by the short projections and numerous points of Mindoro Island on the east west, and by the two small islands of Medio and Paniquian on the north and nortwest. The two latter islands project Puerto Galera's famous Muelle Bay from the open sea, thus making it one of the world's safest harbors.

    About 23.45% of the entire town is used for agriculture, 0.04% are agro-industrial lands, and the rest are wet alnds and built up areas.

    CLIMATE

    Puerto Galera has a tropical climate with the relatively high humidity (the average annual humidity is 84.6%). There's no definite dry season and rainfall is pronounced the whole year round.

Making a Kite

Flying a kite is good exercise and a lot of fun (even if you don’t get the kite up in the air). Instead of going out and buying a kite, make one instead. You will need fabric (or very
strong paper), strong glue, two wooden dowels and string.

To begin, lay the two dowels in a cross position and use some of the string to lash the sticks together into that position. You will do this by weaving the string in and out of the
dowels. Once the dowels are secure, put glue on the string and leave it to dry. Once this is done you should have a strong frame for your kite. Making a Kite
