47 miles from North Button
This is undoubtedly the most spectacular anchorage at Barren Island. Common sense dictates you should have a long hard look at the volcano before anchoring here at the bottom of the lava flow.
You will need a good bow and stern anchor. Basically you want to end up strung across the mouth of the small inner bay formed by the lava flow with a bow anchor on the shelf on one side, a stern anchor on the shelf on the other side and the yacht sat between these in deep water. This spot is exceptionally well protected and is out of the volcanic dust fallout.
