    Anchor opposite Porth Loo. You can’t anchor any closer to the town than here. Free access to the dinghy pontoons. Holding is ok in the weed but there is a patch of sand just SW of Taylor’s island. You can see it on Google. Swell affects this anchorage so it is generally quite rolly. Showers on the quay next to the harbour office.
