A SHERIDAN SEBANG VILLAGE, ST PAUL’S BAY

SHERIDAN SEBANG VILLAGE. 10°11.857N, 118°53.744E

Anchor in 5-10 metres in this north-facing bay. As well as several resorts and shops ashore, this is the main staging area for trips to the Subterranean River with ‘banca boats’ full of tourists coming and going. The cave tour takes 2-3 hours and is well worth the experience.

There are road links to Puerto Princesa and it takes about two hours by jeepney. To the west of Sebang boat pier is a beach-front waterfall where jerry cans can be filled. In northerly winds the swell here can be uncomfortable.
