Countries: Indonesia , Philippines

Following the success of the Sail Morotai yacht rally from Davao to Morotai, Indonesia last September (see noonsite report here), Holiday Oceanview Marina in Samal has now announced the next yacht rally for 2013. This time, the route will be from Davao to the featured islands of Indonesia for 2013 - the Derawan Islands.

The Derawan Islands is an archipelago located in Berau, East Kalimantan, Northwestern part of Indonesia. Consisting of several islands, what makes Derawan a perfect tropical paradise is not just its fine white sandy beaches, palm trees and year-round warm atmosphere, but its glittering seas, changing colors from green, to aquamarine to dark blue.  Underwater life here is nothing short of spectacular. One can find the world's biodiverity, such as giant turtles, dolphins, manta rays, dugongs, barracudas and stingless jellyfish.  Not surprisingly, Derawan island is known as the best diving spot in the world.
