Puerto Galera was said to be Paradise. My latest trip to Sabang however made me think otherwise. Going to MIndoro Island from Manila needs to pass Batangas City where Batangas International Port and Container Terminal is located. The port looks impressive but when you get...More

Just had the best Cappuccino in Sabang at the 50 Bar at the Atlantis Resort. Great friendly and cheerful staff with a very enjoyable selection of background music while watching the dive boats come and go. Just ask Ton Ton to make you one.

An example of completely uncontrolled development, where everyone wants in on the tourist dollars. One of the restaurants has photos from 20 years ago - Sabang had a beautiful, white beach at that time! Now resorts, restaurants and dive shops encroached on the beach right...More
