    Large and safe bay with good protection but in a building context among the worst in the Balearics. Beware of the two dangerous shoals in the center of the bay, well marked by yellow and black beacons. The seabed varies but if you look hard you will find areas of sand

    Rada grande e sicura con buona protezione ma in un contesto edilizio tra i peggiori delle Baleari. Attenzione alle due secche pericolose al centro della baia ben segnalare da mede gialle e nere. Il fondale varia ma se cercate bene troverete zone di sabbia

    Quite crowded in June, med style but room can be found especially once the day trippers leave. Beware swimmers in-between boats when cruising and looking for a spot. Buoys mark the central shallows and depths reduce quickly there. Deep at the outer but 3.5-5m further in can be found. Good holding in sand with some rocky patches easily avoided. Not a pretty bay with development all around, plenty of bars and shops if you want that. We found it quite rolly in a SW but likely better than any other local anchorages.

    Good place to get supplies, everything you need within walking distance. Big Eroski 15 mins walk from the beach that does delivery if you ask. Water not the clearest but plenty of space to anchor and lots of sand
