Puerto Princesa, Palawan: Sabang Beach– a walk to remember

Sabang beach is a nice place to spend time while waiting for your underground river tour.  It is really a wonderful and picturesque place; with fine sand beach and crystal clear waters.

While waiting for your schedule for your underground river tour, you can stroll down the fine sand beach of Sabang. You can also opt to have the mangrove river tour while waiting for your UR tour. Sabang Beach is near the port where you will ride the boat going to the underground river.

The amazing wind that blew in my hair is really a feeling that I will never forget, the sea breeze is really refreshing and relaxingwhich I needed  the most after 3 painstaking months of hard work in Law school! It’s really a blessing to be able to savor the beauty of nature after everything I went through. And also the blue colored water greeted by green grass and tall coconut trees are really a view to be cherished--something you will never see if you live in a landlocked state or in a vibrant city anywhere in the world.

A picturesque view! 🙂

The beach is a long one. It will be tiring just to walk from end-to-end, so I decided to pick my spot, sit on the sand and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Take note that I don’t like the sun that much– being an Asian like me, I prefer being fairer than tanned, and in the Philippines being fair means being beautiful– even though this is the case, I still went forward to the beach where waves gently crashes the sand– this sight is really beautiful, the sound of the waves are really relaxing– as if I’m in a yoga class!

It was scorching hot when we get there so the weather is very nice to take photos of the place. The water is as blue as the sky above it. It is really a wonderful view, a place to inhale fresh air and feel relaxed.

You can also lounge in the recliners near the sea, just order some refreshing shake in Sheridan Beach Resort 🙂

Furthermore, I really LOVE the sand, it is so cuddly fine. I love walking bare foot since you are like walking in powder, it is really fine, as fine as the one in Boracay although not as white.

There are also some resorts or restaurant establishment near the beach (it is usually beachfront) but it does not cover the picturesque view, the place is still picture perfect.

One of the best hotel resorts in Sabang is the Sheridan beach resort, the place is also beautiful with mountains as its backdrop.

I ordered Melon Milkshake in Sheridan Beach Resort in Sabang Beach and lounged on one of their cozy chairs. The place is really beautiful.

You can also eat your lunch in Sabang beach after or before touring the Underground River. There are various restaurants in the area that offers affordable and delicious food

We ate a Penao like an Inasal/chicken barbecue near the beach. It only cost P89.00/ 2 USD with unlimited rice. You can also try their buffet for only P200.00 or $5USD. The taste of the food is good and the price is also perfect.

So basically going to the Underground River is not a waste of time, amazing scenery awaits you even before you enter one of the new 7 wonders of nature

How to get here:

1. You can ride a van (Lexus) to go to Underground River for only P200.00 per person (one way)

2. You can rent a van for P3500 good for 7-14 persons (roundtrip)

3. You can also rent a tricycle good for 2-4 persons

Tips:

You can also opt to stay in Sabang beach for the night but I do not advice it since there is an undercurrent during the night. And undercurrents are dangerous even if you are an experienced swimmer.

Warning sign that says that there is strong undercurrent after 6:30pm

    1. thanks melvin! 🙂 A lot of budget airlines are going into puerto princesa, even airasia 🙂 I hope you can come visit it soon, it is quite a paradise, I will be writing about the Underground River soon 🙂 Thanks for your visit! 🙂

  1. Didnt notice the resort before when i visited two years ago. I agree, Sabang beach is a good place to while the time away especially after the underground river tour!

    1. At first I thought the beach is just an average looking one if you look at it from afar (from the Sabang port–going to the Underground River) but when you came near it and experience its fine sand–It’s a very relaxing and beautiful experience. 🙂

  2. Hi Ynnah! Thanks so much for this wonderful post. Truly informative since we’re on our way to Puerto Princesa in a few months. We will stay at Sheridan Beach Resort too. Can’t wait to read your post about the Underground River.

    1. It depends on what you wanna see and what you wanna feel. If you want to see nature at its best go to Palawan; there are lots of places to visit there and other activities to try…you can even opt to go to Coron or El Nido if you love beaches and hidden coves, though in puerto princesa, the beaches there are also very beautiful, though not as Long as the one in Boracay…. in palawan, you can feel nature and feel relaxed at the same time. However, if you wanna mingle and partey, go to Boracay… it is a good party place with a lot of activities to try such as banana boat, parasailing etc… For me, they have their own different beauties that will attract a tourist. Anyway, if I have money and time I’ll opt to go to Palawan—Coron and El Nido! 🙂

  3. I’ve been to Coron and El nido, and they both are one of nature’s beauty. You should make a blog for Coron as well, and dont miss the lake! haha -much love from the Philippines.
