Caradow, There is a small island immediately to the east of Conception and while quite shallow, offers good protection from westerlies between it and Conception. We tucked in on the west side about 1/2 way up after the wind
shifted to the south and then west - reasonably comfortable and once the wind
shifted to the north, we went back over to the west anchorage.
BTW, excellent beach combing on the eastern shore.
Once you are back on the west side, take the trail along the northern shore to the beautiful bay in the middle. The northern shore of Conception is full of coral
heads, I would say impassible in a sailboat.
