This sheltered bay is a hurricane hole located on the northeastern coast of Cuba.There is a 30 meter high lighthouse that marks the entrance to the bay.
Position 21º 06.00'N, 75º 57.95'W.
This is now a port of entry. Officials are reported to be very courteous and friendly.
If help is required to navigate the channel up to the port, call for assistance on VHF channel 13 or 16.
The marina is very well sheltered, even in a hurricane. Yachts are Med-moored here (see photo courtesy of SY Srathspey who visited here in 2015). Be sure to use rat guards on all your lines (including the electrical cord).
There is also an anchorage with a water taxi service.
Some repairs are possible.
