44 miles from Chiryatapu
Anchor in the centre of the bay for a good holding on sand. Beware the southern point and the extended reef, especially when approaching from the south. The extensive estuary at the back of the bay makes a very interesting dinghy trip at high tide. This estuary has many large saltwater crocodiles. The point to the north of here has incredible sculpted sandstone cliffs with bats, chestnut-headed bee eaters and sea swallows all nesting next to each other.
