After the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park experience, we headed back to Sabang Beach for lunch. We were so tired and hungry so when our buffet lunch was ready, we were more than ready to dig in. Unlimited Filipino food at Sabang’s gorgeous beach — oh life, I love you.

After a few rounds of conversations with friends and almost an hour of rest, we decided to explore the place. Swimming around the underground river site was prohibited so our tour guide was encouraging us to swim at Sabang Beach. We decided to just walk along the shore.

There was a basketball court near the wharf but we didn’t have a ball so we decided to just drop it. We saw another group of tourists from Manila playing patintero at the beach! We joined them of course!

The game is far from over!

Some foreigners walked by and they were like, "What are they doing?" LOL

    I visited Sabang beach with my wife recently and was horrified just how badly many Filipinos treat the area. We saw groups of kids and adults from Manila simply throwing their trash onto the sand with disregard for other travelers and especially the wild life I spent more time picking up their crap than swimming in the (bag filled) sea. As a whole I am disgusted how Filipinos in general treat beautiful natural areas.
