Amid mountains, coves and beaches fronting the West Philippine Sea, participants, supporters and guests of the Philippine Kayaking Series have enjoyed the hospitality of Anvaya Cove Beach and Nature Club for the past two seasons. Members enjoyed as well the spirit of victory and camaraderie at the end of the day. The Club proved to be the perfect host. Hence, this gives a good opportunity to spread goodwill and experience nature in one of its best.
The global trend towards natural, sporty and healthy lifestyles give the environment-friendly kayaking an edge in developing a sustainable thrust to ecotourism and adventure travel. Being the second largest archipelago with 7,100 islands, the Philippines is underway as a kayaking mecca with its natural formations and extended coastline. Water is our element. The sport became one of the fastest growing sport particularly when the Department of Tourism embarked on its Adventures Philippines Campaign, tapping the PKS 2009 in collaboration with private companies, the media, provincial and local government units.
The Philippine Kayaking Series aims to develop and promote kayaking trails around the country towards being recognized as an international kayaking destination.
