Beside you can visit small laguna beach, Big laguna beach. You can rent a moped and visit the surroundings : Puerto Galeras, White beach, water falls....

There's several things to do in Sabang. Bar crawls are really easy because the strip that all the bars are on is really short. There's at least probably 15 different watering holes you can go to. Several are girly bars I would say 6 or 7 maybe 8 girly bars. There's some outdoor bars, one of them being Big Apple... More

If you stay anywhere in the Puerto Galera area Sabang is the best place for restaurants and bars, and the only place for disco clubs and adult entertainment. It also has a number of dive clubs with full dive equipment and instructors. However there is no suitable beach in Sabang.

Sayang beach is an excellent place to spend time diving and snorkeling. It's cheek to jowl with dive centers, hotels, restaurants and businesses that cater to diving and other adult water sports. Not so good, I think for lazy beach vacations, or for small children, but great for underwater enthusiasts. There are lots of wandering venders selling souvenir trinkets. I... More

I was expecting "special" night life, but was quite positively surprised....a lot of natives, and a lot of scuba divers....

Riding our rented 150cc Yamaha through the beautiful jungle roads of sabang, heading to one of the 7 natural wonders of the world was an epic experience. The road through Sabang is great filled with little stops where you can eat local foods, drink fresh juice and chat with the locals. Wish I had more time to explore the jungles... More

Relaxed atmosphere during the day, some interesting characters around. Not much of a beach their and a there is a environment tax on arrival when you arrive by boat. Watch out as I was both short changed and given the old currency which is out of circulation by the tax official. The area has a variety of bars and shops,... More

This is a good place for nightlife as lots of bars and clubs, it's a place for divers and diving but there's no beach although you can travel to one that's not too far away. Plenty of places to eat and drink.

Don't go and expect to relax on a beach to catch some rays. This is not the place for you. Want to dive in the daytime and party at night? Then go and enjoy. There really isn't much of a beach. Mostly rocky some sand areas but it's not ideal. A few good restaurants and bars. Something for everybody. Keep... More

Sabang offers some of the best diving you can find in the world. Not yet destroyed by tourism but lively enough to have a lot of fun. Many PADI 5 star resorts with well maintained compressors.
