Note.    Indicative anchoring positions are for reference only and should not be used as waypoints.  The best position for anchoring depends on many factors including vessel draft, tide, and forecast wind.

Farm Beach is a useful anchorage for vessels planning to enter the channel leading to the Coffin bay township, and provides excellent shelter from the  strong afternoon sea breezes which are common in this area.  The water is shallow, so it is necessary to anchor some distance from shore. The bottom is sand with patchy weed and the holding is good.

Shore access to the wide and sandy beach is possible, but it may be a long dinghy ride.
