47 miles from Balabac Island, Anchorage ‘A’

TAGUGSOM BAY. 8°36.098N, 117°15.915E

This mangrove lined cove is a handy little bolt hole tucked less than a mile behind Bonbon Point. Anchor in sand and mud. Actual depths appear to be slightly shallower than chartered depths and it may be susceptible to swell from the west.

Enter closer to Bonbon point to avoid the reefs and work your way in until you find a suitable depth. Fishing stakes are in the shallows on either side. Surprisingly it is sparsely populated given its good shelter and easy access.
