Palawan is the perfect sailing destination.
From November to May,
the Amihan, the NE trade wind,
blows strong, and reliably.
That's the source for our sailing trips.
The perfect source for island hopping!
Palawan is the largest province in the Philippines and famous for its unique landscape, with limestones and beautiful lakes.
Coron is the base for our sailing trips to Busuanga and El Nido.
Here, just 2.5 nm from the town we find the famous Kayangan lake.
One of the most beautiful anchorages in this world!
This very protected anchorage allows us to walk up to the lake early in the morning - long before the tourists arrive.
The friendly indigenous people of the Coron Island made a path with steps and handrails.
Otherwise the walk up to the sadle would be a serious climb!
We passing by the cave with its astonishing view point over the sea, walk down the other side and swim in this fresh water lake.
Its only a 15 min walk but its a must, when visiting Palawan.
On our way are hundreds of islands, some of them unhabitet and inviting us to chill out on there untouched sandbeaches.
While sailing we always find time to rest.
On board or on untouched beaches.
Following the West cost of Culion Island, we will find another 'secret' and very protected island.
Here we drop the anchor for the night and enjoy snorkeling on the coral reef,
or go for a sunset walk on the long white sandy beach.
Passing the island Linacapan, we come to the town El Nido and to its famous group of islands with astonishing rock formations.
This is just one of many possible sailing trips with Catamaran ASHANTY in Palawan.
There are many islands to visit and explore.
A sailing trip with ASHANTY is an unforgetable adventure.
