We are planning to sail there soon and any "anchorage" recommandations are welcome,

Thank you in advance and best regards
We thought Palawan was the best. Felt like the So. Pac 30 years ago. Friendly folks, good anchorages, food, water, supplies readily available. A decent write up is on Noonsite by some folks we met there few years back.

The PI is so big and covers such a vast area that my advice is to take it slow, keep an eye on the weather and enjoy the PI islander hospitality.

Check out for updates on TC activity.

joekano I've spent some time in the Philippines too as my wife is also from Mindanao. I also share your dream of owning a small beach-front resort and have an American friend who is doing just that on Bohol. We plan to do the same thing and like your idea of offering day sailing trips to guests and tourists.

Philippines, 7100+ Islands

Anybody have any experience in the Phils? I have spent several months there. It is a fantastic, diverse, and beautiful country. This is where my wife is from, and we are trying to gear up to sail to the Phils. I look at the country from the air, and my mind is overwhelmed with the possibilities.

She is from Davao, and I know they are just finishing the breakwater to a new marina several miles away on Samal Island. The travelway is already finished, and things are looking positive. We redid our vows on Samal.

We were hoping to buy a small resort on the beach, but the economy has eaten that plan. I was going to drop a mooring off the beach, and take guest sailing. Maybe now we will just try some chartering there? As always time will tell me what to do......i2f
