A PUERTO PRINCESA, ALBANICA YACHT CLUB 400 miles from Manila Yacht Club

PUERTA PRINCESA. 9° 45.937N, 118° 43.893E

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.

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.
