After passing the tourist attractions of The Butterfly Farm (km 7), Orb and Zip Line (km 9), Crocodile Farm (km 11), Eco Park (km11) Iwahig Penal Colony (km 18) and the Fire Fly Watching (km 23) then you will see fewer tourists, but there are some scenic spots. At around km34/35 you will have some wonderful views of the sea to the right, this will be on the new road as before there was a real nice zig zag road that traversed the mountain, but be careful on this stretch, there are two bad bends. A few kms after the old zig zag road meets up with the new road you will ride near the sea and local fishermen will be selling their catch at the side of the road. At around km 43, just as you pass a bridge if you look carefully to your left you will see the corkscrew coconut tree, and a km or two afterwards there will be a small track on your left leading to a deserted beach and river, good for a swim. There is a derelict building there if you need shade. Around km 54 you will reach the turn off to Inagowan, and if you go down this road a few kms you will come to a beach with two small local resorts. You will also pass by St Eziekel church with Balon Pare, a spring which has holy water and the people believe that if you drink this you will be cured of your ailments. Km 68 you will reach Aborlan, the market on your left with a nice bakery behind it. Around Plaridel at km 82 you can turn left to Tigman Beach (5kms) where you can swim at Camilla Del Sur Resort. Return to the main rd and a few kms later there will be a sign for Estrella Falls, turn off, 4kms later you will pass through the small village of Estrella before turning right and going another 4 kms to the falls. They are worth a visit on a hot day as the water is cool. If you wish to go further south return to the main rd and at km 94 you will reach the town of Narra (some places to stay), then you can continue on another 100kms to Brookes Point ( accommodation available), then still further south is the largely Moslem town of Rio Tuba(km 250?), with some cheap lodging houses. Another 50 kms to the most southern point of the island . Enjoy the trip!

At Santa Lucia Sub Colony at Iwahig Penal farm there is a shooting club at the range, which is located at around km 26 on the southern highway, just before a bridge. You will see the sign for the sub colony on the right, just go in to the guard house which is 100m from the road and ask if you can join the target practice. You should be able to borrow a gun from one of the instructors but you pay for your bullets. Prisoners will set up the targets .

Rent a bike and visit Talaudyong, a small fishing community with a deserted sandy beach on the other side of the island, about 40 kms from Puerto Princesa. If the fish have not been transported to town you may be able to buy some from the fishermen and bbq it yourself. You will have to bring buy charcoal from the sari sari store or find driftwood or old coconuts and build your own bbq device by finding a couple of stones, spearing the fish with a stick and lay the fiah across the stones. To get there take the road north to Bacungan at km 22.5 then turn off to the right, and at the end of the village take the right hand fork which will be unpaved. Ride for about another 9 kms until halfway up a steep hill then the road will split again, take the left hand fork (sign says B Marcelo rd), which will lead you another 10 kms to the village, winding your way along the coast line with some astounding views. The road ends at the fishing village.

If you are in Sabang and you still got time to kill after you've been amazed on wonderful rock formation in underground river take a walk/trekk past the temple ( i forgot the name of the temple, just a small temple though) to the water falls. Or you can asked the locals there espacially the kids they will gladly walked with you, but prepare yourself this is not an ordinary walk because there are lots big stone in the shore.
