21 miles from havelock island
The horseshoe bay on the southern side provides excellent protection. Anchor in 10-12 metres on a sandy bottom, well clear of the reef. The sand spit at the western end provides all-tide dinghy access to the beach.
This anchorage is easy to enter at night if returning from the volcano islands of Narcondam or Barren. The snorkelling and swimming here are superb with manta rays, dolphins and giant leatherback turtles frequently seen.
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.
