St Francis Harbour lies close S of Cape St Francis and is a well-sheltered, landlocked harbour.
The approach is straightforward. Pass N of Pigeon Island and then keep to the N shore, until past the Chain Rocks. A new light beacon has been established on Cape St Francis. This was extinguished when we visited in 2005.
We anchored in Barnes Cove, in 5 fms.
All the cabins ashore were deserted in 2002, and in a poor state of repair.
