Anchor in 5-12 metres west of the island for deeper draft vessels. Shoal drafts can squeeze in to anchor inside the lagoon in 2-3 metres on sand clear of the dive boat mooring.
This awesome anchorage with great snorkelling is the ‘learn to dive’ favourite for instructors with beginners, so take care when they’re down under. Around to the north are the Japanese Gun Caves that are well worth a visit by dinghy when conditions permit.
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.
