Nice anchorage, they put the yachtties on their own island -- it has an australian pay phone
and a thatch hut that cruisers decorate....great snorkeling, there is a bar, a couple small restaurants on the "main" island and some great surf...the people that live there built a hut down by one of the breaks that everyone just leaves their surfboard in, totally unlocked and open
thought that was neat....
swam with a pod of dolphins
in the lagoon
around the anchorage for what seemed like forever, the entrance into the anchorage goes through a pass in the reef and dolphins
tend to "guide" new boats in, if you see a new boat
coming in put on the ol' mask and fins and get after it...
all that being said it IS a long way from anywhere -- which is both good and bad, if you're doing the Indian Ocean route
from Darwin west it's a nice stop on the way to Rodrigues
