It's all about diving here and there are a lot of facilties to cater for this. Its also the main town center here and has the night life for people wanting this. The place doesn't have a beach and doesn't appeal to the eye so if scuba diving and night life are not your thing choose else were. Little Laguna... More

Spent a few nights visiting in Sabang. Lots of stores, restaurants and bars. There is a seedy side to the town and keep your eyes open and be careful. I never had a problem but be aware. Motorcycle is pretty much the only option for transport out late at night.

By day a good place to wander around by night the party place. Think Patong on a Friday night. If using road they are pretty horrible so take care if drinking and trying to ride bike home - massive divets in road.

Even just 3 years ago sabang was tolerable. Now it's not a place I want to be at. Traffic? On an island???? Noise? Again on an island? Sadly, it might be the last time I come to puerto

I dive here all the time. Cheap place to be at, considering it is so close to Manila. Safe place and full of friendly people. Dive sites are incredible and teeming with fish.

Sabang Beach is a picturesque beach area. An approx 2 hour bus ride with JAM Transit from Pasay or Cabao in Manila and an approx 1 hour boat ride from Batangas Port. Ignore all offers of assistance at the port unless you are prepared to be ripped off. Sabang area is popular with divers. You will see numerous groups heading... More
