    Quiet and protected bay, very deep, very wild. Anchor 12 meters deep, away from the coast. Pay close attention to the electric cables, which are high up, which in my opinion are not 20 meters high, especially in the southern part of the bay. I don't think our mast would have passed.

    Baie calme et protégée , très encaissée , très sauvage . Mouiller par 12 mètres de fond , à distance de la côte . Faire très attention aux câbles électriques , en hauteur qui , à mon avis , ne sont pas à 20 mètres de hauteur , surtout dans la partie sud de la baie . Je ne pense pas que notre mât serait passé .

    Beautiful protected anchorage surrounded by high embankments and a small sand beach. No swell just smell at times from burning garbage. A few boat wrecks in the south east corner. Bottom depth varies in the centre from 7-14 metres and shallow to 4 near shore. Power lines definitely along shore which were no problem as we anchored 120 metres from shore in the centre. Will chill here a couple of nights all to ourselves with an occasional fishing boat picking up some bait fish. Highly recommend.
