The town is nice, but apart from a few good restaurants and massage places, there really isn't much to do (unless you're into girlie bars, of which there are several). The diving in the area is world-class, however.

We went into Sabang on two occasions to see what was the big attraction. Unfortunately we failed to find it. It is basically a dilapidated strip of six or seven bars with the flotsam/jetsam of a redlight district.

Sabang is the biggest center of activity near Puerto Galera. It's heavily dive-oriented, but plenty for non-divers as well. You can walk all along the beach, from Sabang itself to small and large Laguna. The beach is lined with a wide variety of restaurants, dive centers, and hotels. The town itself is crowded and touristy, but there are stores and... More

Beach wasn't great but most of the people visiting this area were there to dive which meant it was less crowded with a different type of tourist. I really enjoyed my time here.

You can find all the basics here. A few good places to eat some shops an a good place to change money. There is a good Doctor here if you need one. She is very good and speaks excellent English. On my first trip I found her out of need. 2 visits ans the required medication cost less than $60.00... More

I met with the physician at the clinic here. She tells me that all the town sewage finds It's way into the bay untreated, & ameobic dysentery is common. I would suggest walking to Little Laguna to swim, you will find easy snorkeling with Nemo there I did not like Sabong, I thought it dirty.

There are several little restaurant jewels nestled in Sabong and some cool bars. It's a party town, but from what I saw the 40s/50s plus group would be happiest here. I'm not sure if you'll get much attention as a single western women - but that's not uncommon in the Philippines.
