    Anchoring can be a little tough if not in the good mud and sand, but once set it holds well. Has good depth and easy access from the ICW. The deepest area is near to the shore of the barrier island, on the north side of the anchorage. Turn to port once you have turned off the ICW. The south side is very shallow. A nice beach is near on the Atlantic side of the barrier island, accessible only by water. A good spot to wait for weather and tide to jump off to the Bahamas, assuming provisioning was done already in Stuart. Be very careful going out St. Lucie inlet (avoid condition where wind is opposite the tide) waves can get dangerous.

    Stayed here 2 nights in March 2017. Excellent anchorage with 9+ depth. Room for 10-15 boats. There were 9 when we anchored and room for many more. Close dingy ride to beach to swim, boogie board or explore. Not great protection during the day for passing boats. Quiet at night and early morning. Waves can pick up a bit if coming from the north.

    Wonderful secluded area with short dinghy ride to ocean beach. Sign says no pets on beach but everyone walks their dogs on ICW side of island. This is NOT a no wake zone so hold on tight, some people just don't know how to slow down. Most ICW traffic is near end of day so sleeping overnight is fine. The beach is worth it. Water ranges from 8 to 12 feet not shown on chart.
