Sabang is an island of Palawan tucked amidst pristine beaches, lush mountains, cliffs and mangals (assemblages of woody plants known as mangroves). The place has a rustic feel to it, reminiscent of the province I grew up in. It is so pristine that there is limited electricity in the area. Surrounded by such beauty, serenity is thus a luxury one can easily achieve.
After our lunch, while other tourists were busy swimming in Sabang Beach, my friends and I opted to have a Mangrove Paddle Boat Tour. On our way there, our eyes feasted on lush greenery and good views of the beach and the sky.
We also passed by Daluyon Beach and Mountain Resort which we were told was an affiliate resort of Puerto Pension, the place we were staying in back in Puerto Princesa. I remember hearing from the front desk clerks of Puerto Pension that this is the only resort in the area that has 24-hour electricity as very few establishments and houses own generators which they usually turn off at 6 PM.
My best find on this sightseeing tour though is this flower. I don't know what it's called. I just know it has a pinkish-white variety which I used to pick as a child and put behind my ears. I was actually surprised to see it there and in the wilds nonetheless as I only see this during the summer in school and home gardens.
