    Locally known as 'blood alley' this spot is beautiful. Great protection against most weather. Yes it's for shallow draft boats and you get rocked a little from the commercial ships going in and out of Poole but those are very small downsides to an otherwise stunning location. Great holding in the sandy bed.
