    Pretty little cove just inside the headlands. Popular for day trippers and beach goers. There is a slight swell but not uncomfortable and the winds are currently 6-7knts from NE. Sandy bottom and good holding.

    Very pretty bay. Good holding in sand (check google satellite images for position of rock spurs). A little swell does enter, we had a brisk easterly wind when we anchored, which was fine, but when the wind dropped off for the night the swell was noticeable (but bearable). Any risk of a northerly or a north westerly, and this anchorage would be unbearable. Great access to shore side walks from the busy beach (some discrete nudity apparent when we were there July 2020).
