Review of Sabang

Reviewed October 29, 2013

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 services in quantity.

You can't call this a beach but it certainly serves as a entry and exit point for the divers. There are heaps of boats about in the bay. The dive shops are spread all along and if your looking to dive then this is the spot to come. The water out the front isn't really that clean but by the time you go out about 100m there is awesome diving and the water is clean and not so much pollution.

Sabang is not a beach resort. So don't stay there if you want to come out of your resort and lay on the beach. Nobody sits on the beach here or even swims, except ther local kids. This place is really for the dive resorts and their boats. Its all about the diving and snorkeling further out on other islands. Sabang has the night life though. Behind the beach and resorts are a few ally way type streets with disco and go go bars. And quite a few restaurants, then you have the main road with more shops and restobars.

it is a tiny beach filled with boats of diving clubs, snorkeling is ok but the sands are not clean enough. The reefs are not far away from the beach though, convenient for diving

My many visits to Sabang have always been great. Not much to do in this town if you do now like scuba diving. Most of the resorts are geared to service scuba or snorkeling visitors. Some resorts have pools however they maybe used for diving courses most of the day. Good restaurants and a few bars in and around the area.
