Update February 2023
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 21st Feb 2023
The wreck on the bar offshore from the Harbour has been washed furthe ashore and is now inboard of the perch making the outer limit of that bar. We've changed the image in our image gallery to reflect this.
Update Spring 2018

All is well here but you are unlikely to find a pontoon berth so will have to use the wall
Update summer 2016
Written by dononshytalk | 22nd Sep 2016
The new pontoons are full up and a visitor will have to find space on the West wall and dry out. The butcher is definitely closed but the ice cream shop is open. There are still no toilets here.

These notes were reviewed by Don in April 2016. There is a new photo in the gallery showing the layout of the pontoons. This harbour is being improved all the time and it is not certain where they will stop!!
