Port Bonbonon, Negros Oriental, Philippines  Back to Philippine Harbor Information    Back to Valhalla's Mooring Page

This idyllic, secure anchorage on the southern end of Negros Island is a favorite for many yachties ... some who have returned many times to enjoy the security and seclusion of the area.

  Here's the general location      .................                and here's a chart of the harbor.

The waypoint and track shown on the harbor chart have been used successfully to enter the narrow channel.  Use them at your own discretion (and risk) and keep a sharp eye on the depth sounder and the shoals which are difficult to see in the murky water.

The area shown as the "Yacht Anchorage" is generally where most yachts initially anchor.  Others have spread out around the harbor and some are on moorings.  Holding is excellent in mud over sand except at the very northeast end of the harbor where it is mostly mud.

To the left is a track from one of our entries.

 

An excellent 'sailing directions' for entry is on the Tongo Sail Inn website, here.

DOROTHY'S SARI SARI STORE A good place to catch a 'habal-habal' motorcycle at just about any time.  Safe place to leave your dinghy.  Dorothy and Serio are a wealth of knowledge about the area.
