This marina is located within the Kenting National Park. The floating docks, repaired in 2018, are equipped with water and electricity (110v and 240v). There’s a small-boat ramp for trailers. Haul-out by crane can be arranged. The marina office is manned by park staff.
The sea from Maobitou to Houbihu is a special part of Kenting National Park. Soft and hard coral, as well as a variety of colourful tropical fish, eels, shrimps, clams and seaweed are easily visible through the clear water. The area is a favourite with scuba divers.
Approach Houbihu Marina with extreme care, as it’s easy to run aground on the reef, which extends both sides of the channel. Approach from the east or southeast to waypoint 21°56.330N, 120°45.263E. Pass between the channel markers and head for waypoint 21°56.306N, 120°44.942E, turn onto a NNW course until you pass between the lights. Have a competent lookout on the bow from the first waypoint all the way in, as there are scattered rocks either side of the course. A night approach is not recommended. T. +886 8 886 7041
