    Excellent holding and protection in bay. Water is very dirty, I wouldn’t swim in it but locals do. Music from beach bar but not too intrusive. Make sure you anchor at least 100m back from swimming buoys in NW corner or the swimmers will complain and you’ll have a visit from the Coastguard and be fined. Speaking from experience today :(

    Driven by the music from the neighboring anchorage, we arrived at midnight. Superb !! The illuminated citadels overlooking the bay give an unreal charm. Caution at night buoys delimiting the beach, they are red and not very visible. Wetting by ten meters on sand.

    Chassé par la musique du mouillage voisin, nous sommes arrivés à minuit. Superbe !! Les citadelles illuminées surplombant la baie donnent un charme irréel. Attention de nuit aux bouées délimitant la plage, elles sont rouges et peu visibles. Mouillage par dix mètres sur sable.

    Nice place. Great when wind is North. Anchor well out from the public swimming beach and rocks. Do not use motorized craft near the shore. The public swimming is not roped off and local people swim very far out from the beach. They do not like your motor. Row ashore. The beach bar will play music until 2, but otherwise quiet and beautiful place with good holding in sand. Gorgeous surroundings of cliffs and castles. Lovely town with cheaper prices than many other coast areas.
