You can either wet or use one of the buoys (a little expensive) located NE of the harbor The manager "Georges" is nice and will advise you. Unsustainable anchorage in the south wind must be anchored under guardini-naxos, or go to the port of Riposto (also expensive)

On peut soit mouiller, soit utiliser une des bouées (un peu chères) situées au NE de la rade Le gestionnaire "Georges " est sympa et saura vous conseiller . Mouillage intenable par vent du sud il faut soit mouiller à l'abri de guardini-naxos, soit aller au port de Riposto (également cher)

Majestic setting despite the railway line running along the shore. Do not get too close to the shore, the bottoms become blocks of rocks. Buoys to the northeast are paying.

Cadre majestueux malgré la voie ferrée qui longe le rivage. Ne pas s'approcher trop du rivage, les fonds deviennent des blocs de roches. Les bouées au nord-est sont payantes.

Splendid bay with magnificent view of the taormina and etna coast. Sandy bottom and towards the shore there are blocks of stones so be careful: some are slightly under the water surface. The buoys field is expensive.

Splendida baia con vista magnifica della costa taormina e etna. Fondale sabbioso e verso la riva ci sono blocchi di sassi quindi fare attenzione: alcuni sono leggermente sotto il pelo dell'acqua. Il campo boe e' caro.

Good anchorage, the welcome of George and Pete is excellent, but the price paid, 80 € for a night on buoy is expensive for a boat of 15m. Taxi service by canoe to get to town is included and is very convenient. The East swell made the wetting uncomfortable.

Bon mouillage, l’accueil de Georges et Pete est excellent, mais le prix payé, 80€ pour une nuit sur bouée est cher pour un bateau de 15m. Le service taxi par canot pour se rendre en ville est compris et est très pratique. La houle Est a rendu le mouillage inconfortable.

The anchorage is fairy. The 95 euros that the man gently asked me for his buoy, is less, he was kind enough to tell me the right place to wet. And if everyone did so the racket could stop. Moreover, very few buoys were taken and the anchorage next to it is perfect. 95 € to spend a night on a buoy is crazy!

Le mouillage est féerique. Les 95€ que le taulier m’a gentiment réclamé pour sa bouée, l’est moins, il a eu la gentillesse de m’indiquer le bon endroit pour mouiller. Et si tout le monde faisait ainsi le racket pourrait cesser. D’ailleurs très peu de bouées étaient prises et le mouillage à côté est parfait. 95 € pour passer une nuit sur une bouée c’est de la folie !

Great place. A bit crowded but still plenty of room. You leave the dinghy unguarded on the beach or pay €40 for 8hrs at one of the little docks.

North west of the bay, just north of the station, and west of the buoys, mooring on a sandy bottom that holds up well. pretty pebble beach multicolored and sporty climb to Taormina.

Wonderful anchorage with stunning views. Anchored in 10m, in sand, excellent holding. Spent 3 nights and held good with 20-25kts gusts coming off high mountains to n, nw, and w. Keep 200m away from mooring buoys or mooring manager may ask you to move. Guess he needs some space to justify 70eur charge for a buoy with same view... Watch out for garbage and plastics in water during certain tidal conditions.

Lovely bay protected from the north but with quite a heavy swell from the south. Boys 30 Euro/ night, otherwise free anchorage. From the anchorage you can see a pathway(a bit crumbling down but nice) climbing up to the beautiful city spectacularly situated on the mountainside. Well worth a visit!

Excellent mooring on sand bottom. Very good behavior. At the foot of Taormina and 10 minutes Max walk from Naxos. Excellent point to climb on Etna. Possibility to put annex on pontoon towards Naxos. And bus stop in front of the pontoon. Until June 1st, anchorage without buoy. In contrast, close to the railway.

Excellent mouillage sur fond de sable. Très bonne tenue. Au pieds de Taormina et à 10 mn Max à pied de Naxos. Excellent point pour monter sur l’Etna. Possibilité de mettre annexe sur ponton en direction de Naxos. Et arrêt de bus devant le ponton. Jusqu'au 1er juin, ancrage sans bouée. En revanche, proche de la voie ferrée.

Good anchorage. Well sheltered from both the NE wind and when the wind is channeled from the Strait of Messina. Very beautiful the blue cave, you can visit with tender. Good field buoys, the manager George is very kind.

Mooring service to the excellent buoy .... perhaps for a buoy a bit 'expensive, the bay and the landscape deserve.

Sailboat with a draft of 2.35m wet by 8 meters deep on sand, but when we put a rope. The anchorage is calm, in the background Etna under the clouds, the passage of a train but not bothering in the evening and the port of Naxos (Giardini). Well sheltered from the north wind that blew all day.

Voilier avec un tirant d'eau de 2,35m mouillé par 8 mètres de fond sur du sable, mais on a quand mis un orin. Le mouillage est calme, en toile de fond l'Etna sous les nuages, le passage d'un train mais qui ne derange pas en soirée et le port de naxos (giardini). Bien à l'abri du vent du Nord qui a soufflé toute la journée .
