Sabang Beach | Visit Mimaropa

Sabang Beach

Sabang is a small village in Palawan. It is used as an entry point to the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River.

Aside from being the jump-off point to see the Underground River, Sabang beach itself can amaze its visitors with its calm waters and long stretch of  light brown sand which is a great place for jogging or a morning walk.

Sabang has waves that are good for surfing. Even only few resorts offer surfboard rental,no one can  hinder you from having fun getting splashed by the waves.

Sabang has a long stretch of fine light-brown beach that is comfortable for sitting down and watching  people get surprised by how big the waves are.

How To Reach Sabang

By minivan/jeepney

From Puerto Princesa, take a trike or jump in a minibus going to the “New Market” jeepney Terminal in San Jose. It takes about 10 minutes. Trike fare is about P80 and the minibus about P12. Four trips from the San Jose Terminal to Sabang run daily between 7AM and 2PM. The bus/jeepneys both cost 150pesos and the trip takes about 3 hours.

There’s a shuttle that can take you directly from the airport.

On a tour

Any tour agent in Puerto Princesa will sell you a day trip package for 1200-1500pesos where you are transported to Sabang in a minivan and includes a tour to the Underground River and lunch buffet at a beach resort.

By boat

All boats into and out of Sabang are subject to weather conditions. Only a few charter boats are fully registered and insured to transport passengers for tourism between Port Barton, El Nido and Sabang. Some of the boats making these voyages are in poor condition, have small engines, bamboo balancers, and are not properly registered.

The price and frequency of boats from Port Barton and El Nido are dependent on demand – there may not be not any other customers and therefore no boat the day you want it unless you pay for the entire cost of the trip.

By car/motorbike

Motorbikes can be hired in Puerto from one of the many shops on Rizal Avenue close to the intersection with North Road. Price depends on number of days and bikes hired, age and type of bikes, and your negotiating skills, but aim to pay 350peso or less for older semiautos. The ride to Sabang is 73km, all on paved roads, and quite scenic. There are a couple of lookouts along the way, as well as some caves. Check the weather before leaving Puerto.
