Sabang is 80km away from Puerto Princesa, the capital city of the province of Palawan, Philippines. The trip from Puerto Princesa to Sabang normally takes approximately 3 hours. Sabang is the gateway to the famous underground river. Tourists on a packaged tour normally have a stop over in one of the resorts in Sabang for a buffet lunch that is served in one of the huts by the beach.
The beach was really quiet that gloomy afternoon and it was really surprising not to find too many people enjoying this beautiful beach, not to mention fine white sand and clear water. Well, maybe most people, like us, were on their way to the underground river and just stopping by for lunch and not to actually go swimming here. The beach looked really quiet and peaceful, very suitable for beach-loving people who are tired of noisy and crowded beaches.
We were getting a little bored already while waiting for our lunch to be served so I got up and started taking some more photos, a few people went for a little swim while the rest stayed in one of the huts.
It was such a relief when lunch was finally served. I really couldnt wait to leave as the weather was starting to get really bad. We were told that the boat ride to the underground river takes about 30 minutes, and I’m not good at boat rides especially on a bad weather.
We headed down to the shore again after having lunch to take a few more photos while waiting for the rest of the group. It was one fine-gloomy day in Sabang beach.
