I reviewed these notes in August 2021. There are no changes but the water at Reen pier may be historical. Our best advice is not to rely on being able to obtain fuel or water here.
Update Summer 2019

These notes were reviewed in July 2019. Thanks to Ningaloo for the comments below; we've modified our comments re Mary Anns which were made years ago!! We have edited the contents to include his anchorage
Nice anchorage, disappointing food

Nice spot to anchor just to the left as you approach the main moorings. We had 1m below our 2m keel with good holding.
A little disappointed with Mary Ann's restaurant. The lamb rump was more like slices of reheated roast and the monkfish was smothered in a cream sauce that was not to my taste.
