Evaluation

*Average:    3.75
Sabang beach is a good place to start exploring the Puerta Galera area. Though the beach area itself may be too busy and hastily developed for many divers' tastes, there are certainly plenty of dive ops to choose from. Atlantis appears to be the best known, but we dove with Asia Divers one beach away, with the only dive pier in the area. It had the most professional dive guides we have seen in the area - always someone available for four dives a day in any weather - beginner guides, intermediate, advanced current, deep wreck, trimix, you name it. Sabang beach has three small shallow wrecks and lots of scattered coral heads and ridges, loaded with typical and cryptic inverts, eels and fish. Close by are even better dives including the world class Canyons and, for nudi hunting, Sinandigan Wall. Muck sites with seahorses and pipefish are less than a half hour away, and during good weather, the crossing of Batangas channel to world class Verde Wall is available.
