General Position:

35 00.2 S 136 10.7 E

Note: approx. only. Do not use as an anchoring point on your GPS.

Shelter From:

Winds W through S to SE


The anchorage is in South part of the bay. Holding is good in sandy patches.


This is a beautiful spot but can be uncomfortable if the swell licks around the point and the wind holds the bow to the shore. In which case consider moving to Snug Cove.
