Mindoro travel guide

3.4
Beaches · Scuba & Snorkeling · Waterfalls
Pristine coral reefs and dramatic cliffs make Mindoro a much-coveted tourist destination for nature lovers. Tourist attractions in Mindoro include tropical sand beaches, fishing villages, and near impenetrable hills. An extremely rugged mountain range divides Mindoro lengthwise into two starkly different areas. More prosperous Mindoro Oriental offers nightlife and scuba diving, while near-wild Mindoro Occidental has fabulous mountain hikes and primitive tribal villages. A holiday in Mindoro offers the chance to spot the endangered Mindoro dwarf buffalo, and go island-hopping along the turquoise blue waters.
