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.

St Peter Island is a large island about 5 miles south of Ceduna. It has extensive sand shoals extending to the north-east, and a rocky shoal extending eastward from the southern tip. These hazards to navigation should not be a deterrent for sailors as they create a very sheltered anchorage on the northern side.

The bottom is sand and the holding good. Shore access is easy onto the sandy beach at the north-eastern tip.
