Port Carmen, Cebu Island, Philippines Back to Philippine Harbor Information Back to Valhalla's Mooring Page
From July 2002 through May 2003, VALHALLA was berthed at Pinoy Boat Services located in the 'Drydock' area between Danao and Carmen, Cebu Island, Philippines. The boatyard is located within Port Carmen as shown below and is an excellent place to have minor or major repairs completed. It's convenient for access to Cebu City (1 hr bus ride) where just about anything can be obtained. Propane is available locally (Lilia's Store, 'Drydock City' - they will get your tank filled) and fuel in Danao or Carmen. Danao has a large department store and supermarket and good local market. Carmen has the best Internet Cafes in the area and small local market.
Anchoring is available in Port Carmen, northwest of the entrance.
A visual range to enter Port Carmen is shown in
this photo. On a course of approx 300 degrees Magnetic, align the power tower on
the hill behind the town with the left visible edge of the roof (the basketball
court near City Hall).
