Sabang is a small village located on the western coast of Palawan, Philippines. It is part of the city of Puerto Princesa, belonging to Barangay Cabayugan. Sabang may not be as vibrant as compared to the other tourist spots in Palawan but it is slowly making a mark among travelers as it is the jump-off point to the famous Underground River.
While Sabang is a tiny village that can actually be toured in a day, there’s actually more to this best-kept secret of Palawan than meets the eye. Not for the faint of heart, there are extreme activities in Sabang that travelers enjoy, such as the Ugong Rock Adventure and the Sabang X Zipline. In the Ugong Rock Adventure tourists get to experience a 75 ft high of lime rock formation found in the middle of rice fields where they enjoy rock caving, ziplining, and zip biking.
Sabang X Zipline is an 800-meters long and 150 ft above sea level of adrenaline-pumping activity, traversing the length of Sabang Beach all the way to the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park.
One of the most underrated activities in Sabang is the Mangrove Tour. The short tour is very educational as a local guide paddles the boat through the mangrove forest as he talks about interesting facts about mangroves and the eco-system in the area.
Tourists enjoy the serenity at the Sabang Beach where they swim, enjoy the sunset, have some drinks, take amazing photos, avail of beach massages or simply relax and bask in the simplicity of the place and the grandeur of nature.
On the other part of the beach, about twenty minutes walk from the port, tourists revel in the beautiful waterfalls facing the sea. It is over 50 feet high, with a rocky pool at the bottom perfect for soaking up.
