Sabang Beach, Sabang

4.3
#2 of 11 in Outdoors in Puerto Princesa
Home to a truly diverse and colorful range of marine life, Sabang Beach offers visitors great scuba diving opportunities, with a host of dive shops nearby. Though the white sands of the beach are minimal--disappearing almost completely during high tide--and swimming is difficult due to the volume of boat traffic and moored vessels, the aquatic life off shore is vibrant and varied. Snorkelers can charter a boat out to the offshore coral garden, though it can get quite cool in these waters, so consider wearing a thin wetsuit. Those looking for a more immersive marine experience can take lessons from huge number of dive shops near the beach, offering courses for divers of all abilities. Those looking to sample the fruits of the sea will find many eateries serving up fresh seafood. A visit to Sabang Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Puerto Princesa road trip planner to plot your vacation.
