    One of the best drying anchorages in the Scilly Isles due to the fact no one else seems to use it. Secluded and protect from swell. Big area of flat sand with no rocks. Drop anchor at 49° 56.053' N 6° 20.740' W and you’ll have plenty of space to swing and dry safely on sand. Dries fully at 1.9 above datum. Also great as lunch / swim anchorage if you can’t take to ground. Just get your tides right and be away in good time.
