Diving -amazing!... but semi-red light district

Great diving, friendly people, easy to get to (3 hr bus, 1 hr ferry from Manila), however - is a bit of a red light district. As a young single female I still really enjoyed it... read more

Stayed there with my girlfriend and friends. I was very lucky to stay in one of the privatre houses in a quiet secluded area with a nice garden etc. And what about the area: There is no beach. There is a sand stripe, and there is the sea, but everything is very dirty and sometimes you can feel a really... More

We arrived - hired a scooter and then ran for the exit. sleazy, dirty and very over-priced. It's just plain nasty. Drunk expats - paid for and a dirty beach. It actually it looks a pretty nice place as you arrive...but that very quickly fads!

I don't know what everyone is talking about, but it doesn't sound like the Saban I visited! It's a beautiful place for more than diving. The beach that you first see when you arrive on bus is spectacular. It's a nice place to relax and walk around. You can walk to a nice waterfall along a beautiful coastline. And hike... More

Great diving, friendly people, easy to get to (3 hr bus, 1 hr ferry from Manila), however - is a bit of a red light district. As a young single female I still really enjoyed it - felt safe and not sinister, but consider staying at White Beach if you want a more family-friendly get away.

Sabang is a nice place to go for a weekend get away it is pretty quiet and a good place for diving. There are several beaches nearby so I would check out white beach which is not too far as well.

Ok move on - nothing to see here but diving. Yeah some great dive sites but beaches are poor, getting here is a hassle. If you are in the Phil's lots of better places to go .

There is nothing much to do there. If you are looking for a beach or any other beach activities, it's not your place to stay. But if you are into diving then its a great place and you must stay here. Though you can go to the other areas or beach riding a tricycle, Jeepney or even a baot. but... More

Whether diving or Snorkelling this is the best place from Manila. Livelier and not sedate like White Beach.
