In general, the sort of people going more than one time to Sabang are retired Westerners, Chinese or Korean tourists spending their money for prostitutes. There are tons of stories about K.O. drops in drinks and men waking up the next morning without wallet or...More

There are such better places in to check out a short drive away in Puerto Galera. We only went here twice and both times we left without being impressed.

It has been 2 years since I have been to Sabang. Could not believe how badly it has deteriorated. Rubbish and rubble everywhere. No wonder the DENR wants to shut it down and rehabilitate it. I will certainly think twice before I come back again.
