About Sabang Beach, Puerto Galera.
Welcome to Paradise,
The Laraw Kali Pamuok FMA International will be facilitating an 12-day Intensive Training Camp in one of the most beautiful places in the Philippines, Sabang, Oriental Mindoro.
It is located on the northern shores of Mindoro Island about 130 km south of Manila and 14 nautical miles from Batangas City. This coastal town is well known among tourists for its numerous beaches and many snorkeling and Scuba diving spots. The area was designated a Man and Biosphere Reserve of UNESCO in 1973 and has some of the most diverse coral reef diving in Asia.
The diving generally focuses around the areas either side of Escarceo Point. Marine life is highly diverse. 180+ species of nudibranchs are found in the area and many species of fish can be seen. Puerto Galera is among the top diving destination in the Philippines. Excellent diving is found less than 5 minutes from Sabang Beach.
Further it is included in the list of the Club of the Most Beautiful Bays of the World, and is the only bay in the Philippines to be found there.Behind the beaches are the huge and generally unexplored mountain ranges of central Mindoro. Mangyan tribes are scattered over the mountainsides - some of the more remote tribes have virtually no contact with the outside world. Of the eight tribes on Mindoro, the Iraya are the largest. They are based in the Puerto Galera area.
