Elmslie Bay

There is road access to this bay and a small settlement with a garage, store and motor camp.

A large wharf is in the middle of the bay, with deep water on both sides. There is water and fuel available from the wharf.

The bay is open to all winds except SW. Sea breezes blow straight into the bay and make the wharf untenable for all except larger boats.

The bay is not recommended as an overnight anchorage except in SW wind and even then it can be gusty.
