Great all around location. It is protected even though the wind can be strong through the passage. Holding is excellent in mud. There is a small dock to land the dinghy just to the left of the fuel dock. It is quiet overnight but very busy on the water and onshore during the day, but for good reason. The views from the chapel at the point are like a fine painting. It is an excellent starting or ending point for the Cinque Terre. The passage between Isola Palmaria is no less than 4.2m, deeper than the chart says.

Probably Porto Venere is the most beautiful town in all of Liguria, absolutely worth visiting the castle, the church of St. Peter, the walls and carruggi. Unfortunately it is always crowded but being a pearl of beauty it is logical that it is so. To visit it, it is possible to ask for a one-hour transit to the Marina at lunch time when many boats are out (they will not charge you anything and if you are two hours nobody tells you anything). The anchor is safe, there is sand and mud good tenner, be careful that on the bottom there are pipes and cables that connect the island Palmaria to land and also debris. (I pulled up a double bed with the anchor). However there is always a corner sheltered from wind and waves, the fault is the ferries that during the day wave. Beautiful in the evening.

Probabilmente Porto Venere è la più bella cittadina di tutta la Liguria, assolutamente da visitare il castello, la chiesetta di S.Pietro, le mura e i carruggi. Purtroppo è sempre affollata ma essendo una perla di bellezza è logico che sia così. Per visitarla è possibile chiedere un transito di un ora al Marina verso l’ora di pranzo quando tante barche sono fuori (non vi faranno pagare nulla e se state due ore nessuno vi dice nulla). L’ancoraggio è sicuro, c’è sabbia e fango buon tenitore, attenzione che sul fondo ci sono tubi e cavi che collegano l’isola Palmaria alla terra ferma e anche detriti. (Ho tirato su con l’ancora una rete matrimoniale). Comunque si trova sempre un angolo riparato da vento e onde, il difetto sono i traghetti che durante al giorno fanno onda. Bellissimo alla sera.

Transit passage and ferrymen ensure that the daytime parking is constantly disturbed. The fund is a good tenor.

Transito di passaggio e traghettatori fanno si che la sosta diurna sia costantemente disturbata. Il fondo è buon tenitore.
