SEAP Southeast Asia Pilot-1
  >   Australia


Home to the Darwin Sailing Club, this long open sandy beach offers anchorage in 10-12 metres. Beware the 8-metre tide; do not leave your boat anchored in less than 10 metres.

It’s a long ride to shore and you must take your dinghy above the high tide mark or be prepared to swim to retrieve it. There are club trolleys to help get the dinghies up the beach. There is a laundry, toilets and showers, lockers and a dinghy rack. Afternoon sea breezes can make this anchorage a bit uncomfortable. Visiting yachtsmen are welcome at the club.
