    A much better anchorage than the one slightly to the West on the other side of the large drying sandbank. This anchorage has more swing room and plenty of depth. Follow the channel as per the charts and we found it was ok for our 2m draft boat. If unsure go on a rising half tide. Once inside there is at least 4m of water at low tide. Place yourself in between the shore and the large sand bank. Google maps sat view shows it clearly as do the charts.
