A few white buildings around an old port. These were once used by a sailing club and diving centre. The island is now a military and conservation zone and yachts arc not allowed to anchor cxcept in an emergency.
The only place to anchor is on the SW side of the island in a small bay between the light and a rocky protrusion. Protection from N and NW winds is good but anchoring is precarious as deep water extends close up to the beach and the holding is poor. Fishing is prohibited around the island.
