47 miles from North Button
A shallow shelf sticks out from the small, black volcanic beach ashore. In shallower water there are coral bombies. Anchor on the outer edge of this shelf in 20 metres on volcanic sand. If the volcano is active you will have a steady stream of volcanic grit landing on you. This anchorage also suffers from groundswell in strong northeasterlies.
While every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in this book is accurate, the charts of anchorages are based on personal experience and satellite imagery and are intended as a guide only. They should not be used for navigation. Please refer to Official Hydrographic Charts of the respective countries.
