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.
Western River Cove is a small anchorage with an attractive sandy beach, and good holding on a sandy bottom. It is accessible by road and used regularly by professional fishermen. Good shelter from westerlies can be found by anchoring near the cliffs on the western side, and from southerlies and south-easterlies by anchoring nearer the beach.
It is an uneasy anchorage if the wind moves to the east. Its small size means it can only accommodate one or two boats.
