Punta Sebaring

2 saves

Puerto Princesa, Philippines • Recommendation • 

My most favorite place in Balabac! After spending time in Arabella Beach, we finally went to Punta Sebaring. First we hit off the best spot for photo-taking. Grabe! I just can't get over how magical the place looked like. It’s very much close to Maldives. The water is like Gatorade blue. Punta Sebaring is one of the prominent places in Balabac which is ideal for camping. It is located in the island of Bugsuk - the second biggest island in Balabac Group of Islands. Our contact, Ate Thess, who manages the place, made us feel at home during our two-night stay. Punta Sebaring has a wide coastline which is almost similar to Boracay. This place doesn’t have decent accommodations but with only few native huts for guests. We just brought our hammocks and tents for our temporary shelter. Just in case you are wondering, they have restrooms here but don’t expect a lot since they are made up of basic materials. Water supply is also good but not safe to consume.

Onok Island

Puerto Princesa, Philippines • Recommendation • 

The highlight of our trip is visiting the famous Onok Island. Before we hit off this place, we first went to Balabac town proper to formally listed our names in the coastguard’s manifesto. It took us about two hours to reach the town then we went straight to Onok Island after filling in the list. The travel time is almost two hours again. It was a little bit tiring considering the long hours of travel but when we reached the destination, it was totally worth it! Onok Island is relatively small and beautiful in person. Same as other surrounding islands, it is also covered with pristine white sand bar and Gatorade blue water. One of the most photographed spots in Onok Island is the wooden bridge and the stilt cottages.

    Patawan Island

    Puerto Princesa, Philippines • Recommendation • 

    On our way to Punta Sebaring, we first visited Patawan Island since it’s close to Buliluyan Port. The island itself is very small; surrounded by pristine white sand and turquoise sea water. This place is also suitable for camping, swimming, and picture taking (just check out the cool spot in the middle of the island).

    Bon Bon Beach

    Puerto Princesa, Philippines • Memory • 

    Just a few kilometers away from Punta Sebaring, you can find Bonbon Beach. The place is totally ‘gram-worthy! The water is clear and the sand is fine as Boracay. What really makes the place a lot interesting are the dead trees along the coastline due to typhoon.

    The place is majestic with long stretches of white sand. Ideally, drone shots are perfect here!
