Hi, there is kayaking, swimming and you can visit some islands nearby. On Culion island, there is an old leprosy hospital built by Spanish which is interesting.

My husband and I were at Sangat a few years ago and neither of us are divers. If you're looking for some quiet time and relaxation this place is perfect. It's nothing fancy but who needs fancy when all you need is peace and quiet. It truly is an isolated island, away from noise and congestion. We'd like to go back soon!

There are kayaks for hire and a short trek inland but otherwise not much to do but sunbathe and snorkel. If you are not diving it would probably become quite borne very quickly.

Hi there, I am a non diver and I enjoyed the resort immensely. If you like snorkelling,just ask the divers to take you along - I found the marine life wonderful. Apart from snorkelling you can relax, swim, do a nice track across the mountain range, take a kayak to a warm spring and take day excursions, which I would highly recommend. Do not expect luxury and sophisticated food, but rather a very nice friendly atmosphere and a great place to relax

Water sports, island hopping, generally chilling and playing in the sea, snorkeling on the house reef, wildlife spotting, trekking,.... The island has it all!! As a diver I didn't have time to do most of this but plenty of people we met did. Absolutely for divers and non divers alike.

Hi, you can go kayaking, jet skiing,snorkeling there are day trips out, bird watching , hill walks and just chilling out. The website for sangat is comprehensive and gives the costs. The day trip to the twin lagoons, thermal lake and coron national park is amazing , you can split the cost by inviting others , but don't forget to add the cost of the park entrance fees. And if you want you can go snorkeling with the dive boat- sangat gunboat is amazing snorkeling hope you go to sangat they will look after you . regards Gill

For non divers there are canoes,jetskis,paddle boards and hobie cats,there are also some boat excursions to nearby islands.However the island itself is quite peaceful with the main sport being sunbathing and eating ! the food is great.If you are with divers ,because of the nature of the layout ,they are only out for around Ihour 20 mins at a time,due to the closeness of the dive sites.Hope this helps.

Yes, of course, you can find other activities like snoorkling, kayaking and other water sports. You can watch monkeys as well. But there almost no space for walking. So, it will be similar activities like at any small islands. If you have been at Maldives then you will understand what I mean.
