These Mesa style hills on Henley and Castle Islands are unique along this coast.

The vertical cliffs on Henley Island

The bays close to the old town - Henley Harbour and Antelope Harbour - are a bit exposed for overnight if there is a SW wind forecast. The best anchorages are in Pitts Harbour (anything except a SE wind) or Chateau in the SE corner of Temple Bay (good in a SW wind) There is a wharf on Stage Island - see next page.

henly hbr 12.jpg (39171 bytes) The old abandoned town of Henley Harbour is a must see on this part of the coast.

The houses are boarded up and mainly in good condition.

It felt very strange to be wandering round on my own with the sound of the wind and the gulls.

This is the church which seems to be in perfect condition and still has all it's furniture including pews etc.

The line of stones leads over the hill to the cemetery
