Ideal mooring to wait for the departure for Ibiza. In the middle of the restaurants of the city an Italian made pizzas to make 200 MN to change. Avenida Rei Jaume 82. Santa ponca. The name: gusto divino .... We can make water at the port by returning right after the rock.

Stayed for a few days due to strong winds from the NE. Very good holding in sand and no swell since wind was off land. Easy access to shore with our dog on quay below apartments. Shops and restaurants nearby. Every evening music until approx 22/23.00 hrs. But no “broenk boenk” as soon as we tucked-in it was quiet below.

Great anchorage. Especially with expected NE winds when a mistral is hitting the other side of Majorca. Good shopping and eating-out possibilities and plenty shops to buy a newspaper (sorry, old school). Anchor in sand.

Two anchorage areas on both sides of the West and East cardinal where you have to look for sand to anchor well. A concrete platform facing the east cardinal, south coast with ladders to leave the annex. Access to the street that goes to downtown by walking 10 minutes on the rocks. Convenience stores on each side of this street including a fruit vendor with correct prices. Easy access to the Marina if needed. Obviously a little motorized swell from time to time.

Deux zones de mouillage de part et d'autre des cardinales Ouest et Est où il faut chercher du sable pour bien placer l'ancre. Une plateforme bétonnée face à la cardinale Est, côte Sud avec échelles pour laisser l'annexe. Accès à la rue qui va au centre ville en marchant 10 minutes sur les rochers. Supérettes de chaque côté de cette rue dont un marchand aux fruits avec des prix corrects. Accès facile à la Marina en cas de besoin. Forcément un peu de houle motorisée de temps en temps.

An easy anchorage because the space is wide, well sheltered. On the other hand we are very disappointed of the village which is in fact a station made of gigantic hotels, buildings and restaurants. Beautiful sandy beaches

Un mouillage facile car l’espace est large, bien abrité. Par contre nous sommes très déçus du village qui est en fait une station faite d’hôtels gigantesques, d’immeubles et de restaurants. Belles plages de sable

Attention areas with little background and 2 rocks marked by cardinal which should not approach to wet. Many posidonies. Very calm, good shelter

A lot of space so easy to anchor. Be careful as soon as you pass the second cardinal east of the bay. Rider enough!

Beaucoup d’espace donc facile à se mettre à l’ancre. Attention peu de fond dès que vous passez la seconde cardinale à l’est de la baie. Assez rouleur !

Mostly safe and very convenient regarding proximity to Palma and services available onshore. Gets a bit busy in August but we've always found a place to anchor.

This is quite a big anchorage and is very popular. There is good access to shore as you can tie up to some rings on the right hand side of the bay (as you look down towards the beach) Plenty of small grocery shops surrounding the bay and also a large Eroski about 20 mins walk. We were anchored on towards the middle of the bay (there was not a lot of space in August 2018) and found we were subject to a lot of wake from small power boats, jet skis and trip boats, which was very frequent during the day. At night, it was blissfully calm. Holding was good in 8m but we had to move on after a day because of the swell.

Super large bay with plenty of sand, anchor in around 5m. Take the tender to the NW side of the bay, you will see ladders and a small slip with a ring and a post, tie up there and walk up the public access road - take no notice of the no mooring sign on the wall behind! Take a 102 bus to Palma in 30 mins, its just a few euros return. Loads of places to eat, banks and supermarkets here too.

Good anchorage rather well sheltered. The town is close but it is difficult to dock its annex most of the access being private. A pontoon exists at the bottom right but just to disembark and the nearby moorings on volcanic rock ...

Bon mouillage plutôt bien abrité. La ville est proche mais il est difficile d'amarrer son annexe la plupart des accès étant privés. Un ponton existe au fond à droite mais juste pour débarquer et les amarres voisines sur du rocher volcanique...

In the northern part of the cala, there are some large sandy areas, you can anchor much more tranquil than in the southern part .... Very nice mooring ...

Good anchorage well sheltered ... but very prized. The water is less clear than in a small cala! If needed a medical center behind the beach with a pharmacy, useful in case of need!

I confirm the other opinions and I insist that it is really necessary to make his hole on the sand. The algae are very slippery. The town is very nice with all the shops close to the big beach. Water not expensive at the station at the entrance to the port. Friendly welcome.

Je confirme les autres avis et j'insiste sur le fait qu'il faut vraiment faire son trou sur le sable. Les algues sont très dérapantes. La ville est très agréable avec tous les commerces à proximité de la grande plage. Eau pas chère à la station à l'entrée du port. Accueil sympathique.

Good Anchorage, but not everywhere good holding. Be careful with the underwater reef in the middle of the bay, we saw a yacht grounding hard there in the night. Stay well outside the area marked by the cardinal buoys!

For me, it is one of the best anchorages in all the Baleares and I always stop there. The city is great. You have a large supermarket in the town (Eroski) and a marine (in case you need shelter) although it seems to have very few visitor places. You can get petrol and water (small charge) in the marina.
