Good holding and shelter from NW in 7-9m on WEST side of bay. Beach area dries extensively with best dingy access on western side (left looking towards the beach). Rubbish bin for yachts on slipway from beach. Easy access to Hugh Street (main street) (Lloyds Bank, Post Office and Co-op).
From Henry Pearson:
The 10 mooring buoys that were in Porthcressa have now been removed (July 2019), reportedly the owners have removed them permanently/gone out of business.
There are some special marks remaining in the bay but otherwise now a clear anchorage.
