This is an extremely shallow part of Kenepuru Sound and has a large number of mussel rafts but can be a lovely place to take a picnic and have a barbeque with its own picnic table and fire place on the foreshore. There is shelter from N sector winds along the northern shore however it is very shallow. The two coves to the south of Mills Bay provide good shelter in S to W to N winds. Holding is excellent but one will have little depth of water within 40 metres of the shore. The southern side of the bay provides good shelter in S sector winds. It is suitable to anchor in NW to N winds in the little nook in the east end of Mills Bay.
- Shallow (<5m)
