    Good shelter from the usual easterlies. Can get big swell into bay on occasion, in this case stay further out. Makeshift moorings for local commercial boats in North, which is best spot to anchor on sand if you're lucky to find room. Also sand bottom on southern end though more exposed. Don't anchor on coral in between. Water taxi available to go to shore. Can leave dinghy on beach though locals fight to do security and had ours chained by the competitor, so called police to sort out the turf dispute. Lots of bars and restaurants on the beach and in town a few minutes walk with a lively atmosphere.

    Nice beach with lots of life and places to eat. Good protection from the east. Attention to approach for shallow waters due to the coral reef, careful to throw anchor on the sand and not on the choirs.

    Bella spiaggia con tanta vita e posti per mangiare. Buona protezione da est. Attenzione all'avvicinarsi per bassi fondali dobuti alla barriera coralina, attenti a buttare l'ancora sulla sabbia e non sui corali.
