    Lovely spot anchoring in 6 -10 m over shallow sand covering rock. Suggest plenty of scope to ensure good holding in the sand patches and to hold against the string gusts that accelerate down from the hills in the trade winds. Wonderful snorkelling around the rocky outcrop at the north end of the anchorage. Swell makes landing via dingy challenging- swim ashore to explore the sand dunes.

    Quiet, very quiet anchorage and the funds near the rocks are very nice. Sand around the 10 m depth. Do not go too close to the beach because of the rollers ...

    Mouillage calme, très tranquille et les fonds près des rochers sont très sympas. Sable autour des 10 m de fond. Ne pas aller trop près de la plage à cause des rouleaux...
