Mooring in the National Park.

Locally, all of Coral Bay sometimes is inaccurately referred to as Hurricane Hole. Coral Bay is four bays within a large bay. Counter-clockwise from the northeast, they are: Round Bay, Hurricane Hole, Coral Harbor and Johnson Bay. Round Bay and Hurricane Hole are made up of a series of coves of varying quality for anchoring. Some are unprotected and some are wonderful bolt holes surrounded by mangroves that effectively shelter vessels during exceptionally fierce weather.

Coral Bay is a customs port of entry.
