As the reef grounds stretches from the East and West of the shores and along the head of the bay, the anchoring is done 200 meters in to middle from the village dock. The bay sees a lot of yacht charter frequency during the high season, paying mooring buoys have been laid, furthur reducing the anchoring space.
