    Wonderful place. 2 pubs onshore, coastal path traverses around buoy. Great for swimming and kayaking. If you have plenty of riding, anchor out a bit under the cliff edge on the southern end. Less crowded there.

    I know the anchorage extremely well. It’s a lovely anchorage in summer but some caution should be exercised particularly when winds are in the south, east and north east. Even when winds are in the Southwest there can be a significant swell in the bay. The bay is fairly shallow at low water particularly inshore so better to anchor off a bit in case the wind veers around to the south or southeast.

    Great anchorage but very busy in season. Nice and quiet out of season especially new year's day! Pub etc on shore.
