400 miles from Manila Yacht Club
Lying on the mid-east coast of Palawan, Puerto Princesa is a good stopover to break the voyage to or from Malaysia.
The large natural harbour to the south of Honda bay is a favourite typhoon shelter. A good option is the Albanica Yacht Club which can arrange clearing and has good access to the main town. A simple club with a restaurant welcomes visiting yachts.
The normal anchorage is just east of the pier with a blue roof where there is good holding in 8-10 metres. Fuel and water are available from the dock and the city itself boasts all the facilities of a busy provincial centre. The local airport provides daily flights to Manila and other destinations and several dive shops operate from the main harbour.
