Anchoring near Mopion Island


I would like to anchor near Mopion Island, the small piece of sand north east of Petit Saint Vincent in the Grenadines.

As there is a reef around the island I know that one needs to consider the conditions of the specific day and to use eyeball navigation.

However I would like to get an idea on which side of the island I will find a good sandy spot to drop the anchor. I have attached a graphic with two spots that I have identified by charts and sattelite images. Maybe someone of you has already been there and can recommend Spot A, Spot B or something else?

I want to stay a few hours during daytime with a 40 ft. cat in FEB.

Hi Philipp,
