Ward Spit is a fully submerged sand spit that protrudes about 5 miles west from the eastern shore at the entrance to the upper reaches of the Gulf. It provides excellent shelter, particularly at the suggested location in the eastern corner.

The bottom is sand and the holding good. The shore consists mainly of mangrove flats, and access is not possible.
