Here we present a series of Google Earth Images of Marinas and anchorages to be found in S.E. Asia.(Also Northern Australia)

One word of caution :- watch you see may be old - it all depends on when the images were acquired .

Each week one image will be presented with the test :-

1. Where is this - give the GPS coordinates ?

2.What is it called ?

3.How do the facilities rate for cruisers on a scale of 10 ?

Any stories regarding incidents etc. in this facility or anchorage would be welcome

Today 8th November :-

This small marina is The Bali International Marina in Benoa Harbour - Bail Island - Indonesia.


The Benoa harbor leads begin at the Sea Buoy at 845'14 S, 11514'55 E. Follow the leads (just below a lone palm tree on the hill above) --on a course of 255True, past buoys #1 and #2 to the beginning of the dog-leg channel. Maintain a course close to the Red (left) side channel markers (stay clear of all Green markers). Continue 30 meters past the last Buoy #8 before turning North - (staying close to the main ship wharf - portside) - to the Marina, located at 844'28"S and 11512'48"E.
