You should find what you want in the Wye River. From the green 1K at the south end of the narrows steer due south magnetic and follow the chart into Wye River. Turn to starboard after entering Wye River and you will find Shaw Bay on your starboard side. Ther are nice sandy beaches around the bay. The beach on the east side has no houses.
Explore the Wye and you will find other gems and out of the way anchorages in the little creeks off the main river.
The Wye also has a good crab population so dropping a pot while anchored will bring rewards.
Wye Island beween the West Wye and the East Wye is a nature reserve and has lots of deer animals and birds. You can land at the head of Dividing creek and a few other places and walk the paths on the island.
Here is some information on Wye Island.
If you enjoy going to St. Michaels I suggest that you become a member of the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. A $200 dollar tax deductable contribution get you free entrance to the museum for all on board the boat ($10 per person saving per visit) and overnight dockage at @1.00 per foot compared with $3.00 or $3.50 per foot at the marinas. If you go to visit for the day, dockage is free. The first overnight per year is free at that contribution level. In the course of a year you can save the $200 contribution easily.
