Sibaltan being one of the oldest Baranggay's in Palawan has a very rich cultural heritage. The sea which has been the most commonly used mode of transportation until the early 90's has kept this place in partial isolation from the rest of the modern world. One good reason why it's has preserved much of it's culture and traditions to this date. Fishing has been the staple source of food and the banca (traditional Filipino boat) as one the most precious possession. The shores are the children's playground. White sand beaches, rich marine life, wonderful people, authentic Palaweno culture, peaceful, and relaxing place - that's this place is all about. Tapik Beach Park is glad to be situated right here.
