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.


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



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.
