7. Where on the island will we land?
The cruise ship will usually anchor at our front beach fixed jetty location on the south-east side of this island as its provides a safe and secure anchorage for the day. If the weather on the south-east side of the island is windy and too rough for anchoring and tendering passengers to the fixed jetty (usually between June and October) you will most likely be brought to our back beach floating jetty on the West side of the island.
