    Very quiet anchorage sheltered from the coral and the islet. Few or no people, ideal for peace and quiet. Please note: no dogs are allowed on the small beaches of the islet (national park), even on a leash.

    Mouillage très tranquille à l’abri du corail et de l’îlet. Peu ou pas de monde, idéal pour le calme. Attention : pas de chien autorisé sur les petites plages de l’îlet (parc national), même tenus en laisse.

    We loved the place 😍 if you have the chance visit here! followed Ovind description here in the comments, stayed in about 2.5m depth looking out for single coral towers. Stayed for 5 days and had perfect holding also with stronger gusts 💨

    Arrived by the pass to Fajou at low tide, we entered the lagoon by veering before the yellow buoy nmr10, then by monitoring the depth we came to anchor in 1.70m with a bottom of sand and good grass. Very calm lagoon despite 20kts of wind. Some nice potatoes to visit while snorkeling, pelican colony on the island. Visit in annex of Caret islet 1.7 names distant.

    Arrivés par la passe à Fajou à marée basse, nous sommes entrés dans le lagon en virant avant la bouée jaune nmr10, ensuite en surveillant la profondeur nous sommes venus ancrer dans 1,70m avec un fond de sable et d’herbe de bonne tenue. Lagon très calme malgré 20kts de vent. Quelques belles patates à visiter en snorkelling, colonie de pélicans sur l’île. Visite en annexe de l’îlet Caret distant de 1,7 nom.
