18 miles from havelock island
Middle Button has a striking sandy spit off the southwest of the island. Anchor in 12-15 metres on sand avoiding the coral bombies. There is great snorkelling here but, again, the coral in this area has been badly affected by bleaching.
If you go ashore here take your ships papers and approved itinerary with you; the forestry officers who live here will want to see them.
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.
