Balete Beach can be found quite easily. A short walk from Muelle Pier takes you past the church and the Municipal Office to the road to Sabang. Instead of turning left to Sabang at the recently installed new traffic lights go straight down to the beach.
Although Balete is just outside Poblacion (town proper) it has not been developed - yet - into a tourist spot. It nevertheless its lack of development has its charm: there are no vendors and no solicitations for massages like you would regularly be confronted with in White Beach and Sabang, but it could be a pleasant getaway for people who want to avoid the crowds or for those who look for opportunities to meet the regular people of Puerto Galera.
