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.

Island Beach is a delightful stretch of sandy beach extending about 2½ miles from Strawbridge Point to Rocky Point. Anchoring is good anywhere along the beach. It is one of the few north-facing beaches in SA and is becoming increasing populated with houses, particularly at the western end.

Browns Beach is adjacent to a small headland about 1 mile further east (Indicative Anchoring Position  37° 47.2’S   137° 51.1’E). It has a small camping ground with barbeque facilities and a shelter shed. Holding is only fair in sandy patches.
