Ballynatra

Tides and tools
Overview





Ballynatra is located in Co. Cork on Ireland’s southwest coast within Dunmanus Bay and close to Sheep's Head. Situated in a small cove it offers a temporary anchorage in settled conditions plus an ideal location to land a shore party on the outer peninsula.

Completely open to the southwest and with a large reef in the centre of the cove, this is a fair weather stay-aboard anchorage. The cove provides protection from offshore winds, west-northwest through north to east. Attentive navigation is required for access. Although there are no off-lying dangers excellent visibility and settled conditions are required to see the sandy patch in which to anchor, and the adjacent reef.
Please note

There is very little swinging room and a vessel should not be left unattended should conditions suddenly change.
