50 miles from Kawthaung
A well protected anchorage – even in northeasterlies. Anchor in 12 metres on a sand bottom clear of the fringing reef. There is resonable snorkelling from the anchorage to the southern point of the bay, but beware of ferocious rip tides off the point.
Ashore there is good jungle walking with a stream and a small waterfall. The mangrove estuary around the southern point is perfect for kayaking. There is now a small village ashore here that has, unfortunately, hunted the once-thriving wildlife to extinction.
While every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in this book is accurate, the charts of anchorages are based on personal experience and satellite imagery and are intended as a guide only. They should not be used for navigation. Please refer to Official Hydrographic Charts of the respective countries.
