16 miles from Chiryatapu
Superb anchorage off a mile-long pristine white beach backed by coconut trees and pandanus palms. Approach heading east aiming for the gap in the sand dunes ashore – there are rocks in the water to the north and south ends of this beach.
Anchor in 5-6 metres – the water is so clear here it looks as though the yacht is floating in the air.
There is superb walking ashore here with many spotted deer and monitor lizards. This beach is one of the few leatherback turtle nesting sites left in the eastern Indian Ocean.
