Pick up a mooring or anchor in 5-10 metres on the sandy shelf east of the protruding reef bank opposite the beach. Keep well clear of the extending reef to the east on approach. The current is strong in this passage and care should be taken when snorkelling.

The National Park HQ is located to the east. Anchorage can be found near the HQ in 5-8 metres or further off in deeper water. Ashore there’s a freshwater creek and a 45-minute jungle trail leading to a year-round waterfall.

Near the beach is a black pipe where jerry cans can be filled with fresh water. Day anchorage and snorkelling can also be found in the middle of the bay on the other side of the isthmus in 10-14 metres.
