Simmy Island

Tides and tools
Overview





Simmy Island is located on Strangford Lough’s western shore north of Killyleagh, on the northeast coast of Ireland. It is an anchorage to the north of Taggart Island in a quiet and particularly picturesque location.

It is a good anchorage offering protection from any quarter except with an easterly component when it would become uncomfortable. The enclosed stretch of water provides shelter sailing in all weather, all tides and has ample marks to make daylight navigation straightforward.
