I’m still not totally sure how I feel about Sabang.  The beach wasn’t the best, but there’s really nothing I can complain about either.  This one was a lot more photogenic than others, which was pretty exciting.  It had a lot of boats on it and the trees along the back edge were quite enjoyable.

The first night there I just wandered up and down the beach taking pictures before laying down and realizing there were all kinds of tiny bugs.  That’s why I ended up spending two days by the pool at one of the fancy resorts.

Sabang is a pretty low key place with the underground river and mangrove tour being the main things to see and do, so any other time is most likely spent relaxing.  Can’t go too wrong with that.

Helpful things:

  • It’s easy to get here from Puerto Princesa than El Nido, but both are possible.  There are shuttle and local buses from Puerto Princesa.  From El Nido you would need to take a shuttle the whole way or a local bus then another bus or tricycle.
  • There’s a nice little hotel/hostel in the square between the market and where the beach starts.  Sort of in the corner across from basketball courts.  Unfortunately I don’t remember what it’s called.
  • It’s a nice walk along the beach and around the curve with the trees, just watch out for high tide so you don’t get stuck.
