The N.W. Side Of The Haven Is Flat Sand, And The S.E. Side Is Like An Island, Being A Bare Spot Without Any Trees, Which Is Not The Case In Any Other Place.

In the road ships ride in 13 or 14 fathoms, the bottom good ouse and sand.

The marks for entering this road are to bring the island and the north-east land in one. We anchored there on the last day of December 1554, and on the 3d of January 1555 we came from the Rio Dulce. _Cape Palmas_ is a fair high land, some low parts of which by the waterside seem red cliffs, with white streaks like highways, a cables length each, which is on the east side of the Cape. This is the most southerly land on the coast of Guinea, and is in lat. 4 deg. 25' N. From Cape Palmas to Cape _Three-points_ or _Tres puntas_, the whole coast is perfectly safe and clear, without rock or other danger. About 25 leagues to the eastward of Cape Palmas the land is higher than in any other place till we come to Cape Three-points, and about ten leagues westward from that Cape the land begins to rise, and grows higher all the way to the point. Also about 5 leagues west from that Cape there is some broken ground with two great rocks, within which, in the bight of a bay, there is a castle called _Arra_ belonging to the king of Portugal, which is readily known by these rocks, as there are none other between Cape Palmas and Cape Three-points.
