    Esmeralda Cove sports a couple of fishing and a National Parks Hut. One of the fishing huts has an emergency VHF radio. The fishing huts are generally occupied. The cove is full of private moorings and there is little room to anchor anything but small fishing craft. The easiest access is to take a motorized tender around from Coal Shaft Bay. There are also reasonably marked tracks connecting Esmeralda with Providence Bay to the northern side and Coal Shaft bay at the south of Broughton Island. Wandering off the trascks is not recommended. The island is riddled with prickly pair and mutton bird holes. Coal Shaft Bay is fringed by dangerous unfenced cliff faces. Esmeralda Cove is exposed to typical easterly and southerly weather and swell. There are restrictions against anchoring on the ocean side of the cove. The island is a National Park and Marine Park. Please check the fishing and anchoring restrictions: http://www.mpa.nsw.gov.au/pdf/psglmp-zoning-plan-user-guide.pdf
