This large bay on the mainland is mostly shallow. Our only recommended anchorages are at the mouth of the bay or on the small island further south.
Both locations on Mui Hon Thi Cape are part of the Evason Hideaway and Six Senses Spa Resort. The newly opened resort is already firmly established as a celebrity getaway destination.
The small bay immediately in front of the resort is out of bounds for yachts unless you have specific permission in advance from the management to visit. There is a large reef to the east of the bay directly in front of the restaurant.
The other bay to the west has a secluded beach and although the resort uses this bay, anchorage is possible in 5 metres on a sandy bottom.
On approach, take care to avoid a large shoal patch in the centre of the bay. Anchor in 8 metres inside the northern end of the bay close to a fishing village. Most of the shoreline is quiet and uninhabited.
Hon Lao is close to the mainland and famous for its monkey show with daytime resort ashore.
Anchor on the west side of this small island in 2-4 metres to shelter from the southeasterly swell.
Best to head toward the large green Chinese Pagoda on the shore, which will lead you away from shallow ground immediately west of the island.
