A bustling city with a laid-back, casual nature
Sailing or yachting is quite popular in and around Metro Manila. The premier sailing club is The Manila Yacht Club, a members-only club (with guest passes) which provides sailing lessons and also holds races. Other regional facilities close to Manila include Maya-Maya Yacht Club and Reef Resort in Batangas, Puerto Galera Yacht Club in Oriental Mindoro, Subic Bay Yacht Club, South Waters Marina Country Club and Farm in Lucena City and Bataan Marina (north of Corregidor island at the mouth of Manila Bay). Sailing is often combined with fishing, swimming or Scuba Diving.
