Mindoro

Characteristics

Description

Mindoro is the seventh largest island in the Philippines by land area with a total of 10,571 km2 and with a total population greater than 1,000,000 . It is located off the southwestern coast of Luzon and northeast of Palawan. Mindoro is divided into two provinces Occidental Mindoro and Oriental Mindoro. 

Oriental Mindoro is the more populous  of the 2 sections of Mindoro. Calapan on the north‐east coast is the administrative capital, but most visitors head to the Puerto Galera area, 48 miles away. The area around Puerto Galera has a very busy tourist season from October to June, so the area is well catered for by inter‐ island ferries, tourist accommodation, markets, restaurants and bars, western‐style deli’s and grocery stores.

Occidental Mindoro is the more isolated, less populated section of Mindoro. Its main attraction is the diving areas of Sablayan and  Pandan Islands,

Moving about Mindoro at night may be unwise, as there are many unlit fishing boats working at night without lights along the coasts.
