Coasters retreat, and also called the basin by some is a popular anchorage that is entirely taken over by club moorings. We visited several times over the March and April period and enjoyed some late summer weather as well as some small storms that came through. If you are cruising then you will likely end up having to tie up on a mooring here as there is little room to anchor in the bay. At most times it is pretty quiet and at busy times you may be asked to move to another mooring if the club owners turn up.
