Add any navigation notes such approaches, dangers etc here. If this section does not apply remove it.


Describe here the berthing options of this port. Are there moorings or you have to anchor? Do most boats moor side-to, stern-to, or bow-to? Etc.


  • Corong Corong is south west of El Nido, just round the big headland. Fringing reefs on both sides should be avoided but the anchorage itself is sand, anchor in about 8- 10 m. Protected from north, east and south although wind does sometimes blow across the saddle into the anchorage, open to south west. We have found it good holding although we have heard of boats which have dragged.

  • El Nido is a pleasant, laid back little village, much nicer than Coron, which is becoming too comercialized. Prices are a bit lower and the anchorage is better too, since there is no reef and it is possible to anchor close in on sand. It also seems a bit less humid here.
