THE SISTERS. 11°08.40N, 92°43.60E

Anchor to the northwest of the southern point of Sisters. This is a great anchorage during calm weather (March and April) but it is very rolly the rest of the time. There is a pristine white coral and sand beach here with some spectacular rock pools at the northeastern end of the beach.
