    We spent a month, anchored here during the Coronavirus lockdown. Bayoneta Island is uninhabited and there is a lovely sandy beach here with an elevated area that is perfect for a BBQ. This anchorage is sheltered from almost every direction due to a reef to the south. Provided you are self sufficient, this is a stunning spot. The bottom was a bit muddy but we had no problems holding. I recommend approaching a couple of hours either side of high tide, as the charts for the area are not very accurate. A boat hit the reef that extends further than shown on the chart, and we nearly hit a rock 1m below us as we came into the anchorage from the North. It is possible to go further in between the islands, but watch for rocks, some of which you can see on Navily’s satellite view. There were a lot of fish and bird life here and iguanas on the island. We were able to windsurf from the boat in 15-20 kts without chopping as we were protected by the reef. Remember the tide can be 4m here so secure your dinghy well when on the beach.
