62 miles from Sebang Village
Malampaya Sound is deep, 20 miles long and offers plenty of opportunity to shelter in dozens of well-protected anchorages.
This anchorage is recommended for most conditions. Ashore on the river is the small town of Calapa. Two other recommended hurricane holes are Taitai Bay, 5 miles northwest, where high surrounding hills guarantee calm waters and 8 miles further north, toward Endeavour Passage, is the Pirate’s Hole at 10°56.800N, 119°19.500E .
While every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in this book is accurate, the charts of anchorages are based on personal experience and satellite imagery and are intended as a guide only. They should not be used for navigation. Please refer to Official Hydrographic Charts of the respective countries.
