Dulangan Panorama

Sheltered by the mountains behind and safe within a bay in a chanel.

Aldanmar Apartments is located on Dulangan beach in the town of Puerto Galera, the island of Oriental Mindoro in the region of MIMAROPA (Mindoro, Maricaban, Romblon & Palawan) group of islands in the central western region of Republic of the Philippines. It is a quiet, family oriented, small fishing village with a couple dozen foreign expats living among approximately 3,000 local Filipino’s. Easily accessible on good roads to the building or by boat to the foreshore and 20 minutes from the tourist and nightlife areas of White Beach & Sabang. Dulangan is the closest barangay to the capital, Calapan City, only 50 minutes away along the Western Nautical national highway.

Dulangan beach faces north east towards Batangas Province & La Verde Island in the safe harbour of Varadero Bay, adjoining Verde passage which connects to the South China Sea. There are no volcano’s, almost no chance of tsunami and safe from earth quakes. Varadero Bay is the Spanish term for Shipyards, whereby the Spaniards would repair their vessels in this safe haven for 300 years from the 1600’s. The surrounding mountains also help to prevent typhoons (huricanes/cyclones) from nearing the area.
