Home to waterfalls and the vibrant marine life of Apo Reef, Occidental Mindoro offers adventures without traveling too far from the metro.

A two-hour boat ride from Batangas will let you explore the beauty that Mindoro is – from beaches to different natural attractions, it’s a dreamy travel destination near the metro that’s waiting to be explored. Visiting the province will usually bring you to Puerto Galera, White Island, or Apo Reef, but if you’re looking for an exclusive destination near these spots, this Coconut Treehouse in the town of Udalo will give you a peaceful retreat.
The Coconut Treehouse is a 3000-sqm lot in a small village located between Puerto Galera and Abra de Ilog. These treehouses are perched on the shore, so expect that you’ll have the sea as your front yard. You’ll be in a small village with approximately 200 inhabitants – you’ll be immersed with residents of different races: from local Mangyans to foreigners from Australia, Germany, France, etc.
You’ll be staying at a rustic treehouse where you’ll be back to the basics – simple living by the beach sounds like a healing vacation experience! The treehouse is ideal for two guests; it’s perfect for solo travelers as well! It’s the ideal venue to immerse yourself in a secluded tropical paradise and get a few shades darker.
The simple treehouse has one bedroom as well as a veranda that overlooks the sea. It’s the perfect spot for doing remote work, lounging, or simply enjoying a meal. During your stay, you’ll also have access to a shared kitchen where you can prepare your meals or consume cooked meals for an additional fee.
If you’re visiting with friends, don’t forget to try camping by the beach as well! Since you’ll be in a small village, this is also the perfect opportunity to learn about the locals, their way of life, and the best spots you can explore around the area.
