2 miles from hon ong
The best anchorage (R) is off the fallow land east of the main village. Go north of the west cardinal mark and anchor in 15 metres on sand. This rustic fishing village is nestled on the side of one of the gigantic sand dunes just two miles north of Hon Ong.
Amazingly, the approach is deep all the way up to the village beach. In the village, you will find several supermarkets selling basic provisions, a pool hall/bar/Internet café and a small street market. It’s bustling with activity as fishermen set about repairing nets and boats. You’ll be a source of great curiosity to the village children.
To the west, directly facing Whale Island Resort is the more secluded anchorage (S).
