A sheltered and well lit harbour, one of the few in the immediate area that can easily be entered at night.

Depths in the inner harbour are no longer as shown on the chart or as described in the pilot. The harbourmaster states that the drying rock (0.3 m) shown on the chart approximately 40m SW of the westernmost quay has been blasted away and the entire harbour dredged to 4.0m with the exception of the innermost (eastern) quay which has been dredged to 2.4m.

Electricity on the quay and showers/launderette facilities in the service building.

Note: There is an active shrimp processing plant in the inner harbour with all the smells to be expected from such a plant. Unless you need walk ashore access to shoreside facilities, those planning a longer stay may find it more restful on the olfactory senses to anchor off in one of the bays in the outer harbour.
