Ha. I may not be allowed to go ashore, so what? I just went swimming/ snorkling. This whole island is one bog coral block/reef. So no wonder you can't anchor here. On the one hand it's deep and on the other full of coral canyons. Quite pretty to snorkel directly from the boat. Would be even good for diving. Millions of corals sitting on dead reef canyons. I cant wait to explore the island as of tomorrow. I'll keep you updated.
