Review of Sabang

A place for two kinds of travellers, "divers" and "dirty old men". Whatever you do..... DO NOT take your wife or girlfriend with you, unless your girlfriend is from a girlie bar herself. As this place has no proper beach left.... there´s nothing for a non-diver travellers to do. If you´re a filipina travelling on your own, the "locals", especially the women, pretty much assume that you´re out there to steal their western customers. This place to me, as a Filipina, is an embarrasment!

Best beach to be based for diving, pleanty of dive sites 2-10 minutes away by boat.
Its not the most prettiest beach in the Phillipines if you are planning to relax at the beach but as said its for diving, there are plenty of other beaches in the phillipines to relax.

The whole place is stinky and smelly! The sewage goes straight to the beach. i wouldn't swim there. The place is packed with old white males, mostly I guess for diving and the rest for other reasons. Food was great as I love fresh catch. Some kids selling their home made jewelry which are lovely. I bought a few to support the local tourist trade.

Many, many dive sites within short minutes by boat. More like a waterfront than a sandy beach for holidaymakers, all its best features are underwater. Please see my detailed review on staying at Atlantis Dive Resort.
