Dumanquilas Bay

Dumanquilas Bay (123.121E 7.734N), on the southwest coast of Mindanao, figured prominently in some American contingency plans for war against Japan. Its anchorage had room for 400 ships, it was surrounded by hilly terrain that would protect it from seawards bombardment, and its hinterland had ample room for airstrips.

There were significant deposits of coal in the nearby Malangas fields.
