    Excellent anchorage with prevailing winds 4 and 1 sector beach and crystal clear water, depth 8/4 meters, sandy bottom, excellent for night at anchor. Crowded in the summer months.

    Ottimo ancoraggio con venti prevalenti 4 e 1 settore spiaggia e acqua cristallina, profondità 8/4 metri, fondo di sabbia, ottima per notte in rada. Affollata nei mesi estivi.

    September 2017. This Bay (named on Imray charts as "Varko") provides good shelter from the prevailing NW, but would be untenable in poor weather that was in anyway S of either W or E. Anchoring is normally quite easy in 5-10m of gently shelving seabed that is a mix of sand and weed; the water is very clear and so you can easily spot where to drop. Can be busy during the day and late-comers might find it difficult to find a spot close to the beach but once the day-trippers have departed, the anchorage is typically sparsely populated, very quiet, and supremely relaxing. We've moored here a couple of times and would happily return. Ashore there is a seasonal beach bar that operates during the day, primarily to service the day-tripper boats. No other facilities close by; there is a track that passes relatively close to the beach, but it is some miles in either direction away from civilisation.
