Cid Harbour is not only considered safe anchorage for bareboat charters but the Australian and American Navy sort refuge there in May 1942 from the battle of the Coral Sea. The four day skirmish marks histories first air-sea battle.
Australian oiler vessel the "Kurumba" stationed in Cid Harbour was a welcome sight for Admiral John Crace and his fleet,who needed refueling.
You can be for forgiven for expecting a bustling harbour town reception here, there is no physical harbour in the sense of the word. It's simply a stunning all weather anchorage.
Walk to Hill Inlet look out at low tide as the sand swirls will be even more amazing at low tide..
Tracks are well marked and easy to walk, but take some shoes to access the coral beach.
