A long barrier reef blocks anchorages to the sea, some parts of the coral barrier are jagged and doesn’t fully shelter the bay from the North swell. There’s clear water at the entrance which is close to the Blowing Point end of the bay. Go towards a small rocky headland on the West end of the beach, aim on about 135 degrees. Get Blowing Point on 270 degrees, change position till you’re headed East. You’ll have a barrier reef to port and the big reefs off the beach to starboard. There’s going to be large openings in the reef off the beach. Nose in carefully until you’re in 3-4 meters of sand. You will find anchorage there.
If you wish, you could go more to the Northeast into Pond Bay. Head about 045 degrees towards Kattiche Point where you can get the best anchorages. A heads up to stay away from the shallow water off the dinghy docks. For sailing boats do not push too far North, all there is a winding passage that is still unmapped.
The best way to get to Tetor Bay is by a dinghy. There’s a trail that’ll take you to the beach.
