Strawberry Harbour is at the entrance to Makkovik Bay, 11 M from Makkovik. It has excellent protection with good holding, in attractive surroundings.
From the 'Route Usually Followed', steer for Strawberry Head, which is distinctive, until the harbour entrance can be made out. Keep mid-channel between the islet and the rock on the NW side of the entrance, and the headland forming the E side of the harbour. The rock off the islet dries 6 ft and is almost always visible. The 1.2m (4 ft) patch, shown in the entrance to Strawberry Harbour on chart 5045, is less than 25 yds offshore, and not a danger.
Anchor in the pool immediately beyond the entrance headlands, in 18 to 24 ft, sandy mud and weed. Good holding. There is adequate swinging room, but if entering under sail, be prepared to use the anchor to stop the vessel, because there is little room to round up in the anchorage.
The cabins ashore are derelict.
