Navigation

South of the entrance to the port is a sunken breakwater, this is not always easily visible. Do not stray too far south of the end of the quay.

Inside there is 3m depth between a point about midway to the quay on the eastern side, shore side of this point there is a shallow reef (<1m). There is some rubble at the base of the quay in places so deeper draught yachts should consider berthing bows-to.

Berthing

Space is very limited, most (all) berths are occupied by local boats or fishing boats but you may be lucky enough to find a free berth. It might be sensible to anchor outside and come in in a dinghy before coming inside in a yacht.

Moor stern or bows to where space available. Most (all?) berths are occupied by local boats and fishing boats

Marinas & Yacht Clubs

None.

Anchorages

In calm weather it is possible to anchor just to the south of the port, but take care of the sunken breakwater immediately south of the port.
