        Recently spent the night here and found it to be a very nice anchorage. Very well protected and quiet. I found the bottom to be grassy but got a good set on the anchor.

        Very nice anchorage, quiet compared to the one on the other side of the Wilson Key. The bottom is very soft mud, so not very good in strong wind. Don’t go too far inside the bay, it becomes shallow very fast.
        We anchored there to visit the “Theater of the Sea”. It’s at a walking distance from the shore where it’s easy to dinghy. Ice, small grocery and Tiki bar very close.
