Mangarin Bay is a bay of the South China Sea, on the west coast of Mindoro island, in Occidental Mindoro Province of the Philippines.[1]

The bay is shoal, and sheltered from the wind by Mangarin Point to the east and by Ilin Island.[1]

Magarin Point terminates in a long sandy pit off which the depth is 4 to 5 fathoms.[1] Farther in the water shoals rapidly.

The town of Mangarin is only accessible by light boat.[1] The surroundings are marshy, and few supplies are available.[1]
