As a repeat visitor, I feel very relaxed at Out of the Blue. Staff are professional and friendly, location is ideal on the quieter Small Lalaguna Beach with Action Divers right next door.
Villa 4 is very spacious for two people with a panoramic view from the lounge and very private views from the bedroom. The kitchen has a large fridge and full size gas cooktop and everything you need. There is a small pool with sundeck just outside the Villa and a large pool down near the beach. Breakfast is freshly cooked to order with a selection of fresh fruits as well. Real coffee is always a welcome start. Dinner at Out of the Blue's Verandah Restaurant has the best views around with western and local dishes. I particularly enjoy their fish sinigang which is served in a heated ceramic tureen.
Sabang is not a typical isolated resort found on so many islands. It is a jumbled mixture of small stores interspered by both fancy and simple restaurants, bars, hotels and dive shops.
There is only one very bumpy road leading from Puerto Galera to Sabang and from there the only transport is by foot or by boat. this is what gives this place its charm. The total lack of vehicles, narrow laneways and rural village life adjacent to the beachside holiday strip. It is worthwhile to take a walk through the hills behind Sabang to see how locals live in tradtional villages.
Combining a stay in Out of the Blue with scuba diving with Action Divers could not be easier. Walk down the steps to the shop next door and your gear will be ready for you there. The traditional banca style dive boat will leave from there and in five minutes you can be diving in the most fascinating sites you can imagine. An hour later you are back poolside at Out of the Blue resting for your next dive.
Everything is spotlessly clean, and well maintained. A nice touch is the free laundry service which is great for people like me who travel light. You don't need more than shorts and a singlet or t-shirt in this resort, but it is nice to have have them fresh.
