SOUTH POINT

Anchor in 12-18 metres on the east side of the southern point of the island on the sandy bottom; watch out for the edge of the reef.

There is good snorkelling, diving and fishing along the reef edge. While the extended reef offers some protection, if the swell rolls in from the northeast, it is better to move north to anchorage (E).

On the shore to the north are the wrecks of HMS Briton and HMS Runnymede, both of which remarkably ran aground here in the early hours of 12th November 1844.
