BALABAC ISLAND

BALABAC ISLAND. 7°59.528N, 117°4.169E

The main village is in a deep bay on the east side of the island. The bay shelves up and it is possible to get quite close to the village with care.

Anchor on a muddy bottom in 5 metres. There are isolated coral heads close inshore. It is a quaint ramshackle village built along the shoreline and out on stilts over the water.

Some basic provisions can be obtained from the friendly villagers here, including Philippines SIM cards for Globe and Smart.
