    Undoubtedly ideal for replenishing supplies, but it is necessary to be able to dock on the beach with the annex. We take the classic access channel marked with cone and cylinder buoys and surprise! the channel is closed by a waterline 50 meters from the beach ... We therefore pass under and even before setting foot on the beach we see a beach supervisor who comes towards us and a dialogue ensues deaf people: we are not allowed to land our dinghy with or without an engine (it is almost 8 p.m., the beach is large, there are no crowds and we are 5/6 sailboats at anchor) After about 30 minutes of difficult discussions half-English half-Spanish and the help of a nearby Spanish holidaymaker then the intervention of another more cooperative supervisor we are exceptionally allowed to leave our annex just in front of the "café del sol" where we eat finally our tapas. Welcome to the realm of the absurd !!!

    Sans doute idéal pour refaire l'approvisionnement encore faut il pouvoir accoster sur la plage avec l'annexe. Nous prenons le chenal d'accès classique balisé avec des bouées cônes et cylindres et surprise ! le chenal est fermé par une ligne de flottaison à 50 mètres de la plage... Nous passons donc par-dessous et avant même de poser le pied sur la plage nous voyons un surveillant de plage qui vient vers nous et s'ensuit un dialogue de sourds : nous n'avons pas le droit de poser notre annexe avec ou sans moteur (il est presque 20 heure, la plage est grande, il n'y a pas foule et nous sommes 5/6 voiliers au mouillage) Après environ 30 minutes de discussions difficiles mi-anglais mi-espagnol et l'aide d'un vacancier espagnol proche puis l'intervention d'un autre surveillant plus coopératif nous sommes exceptionnellement autorisés à laisser notre annexe juste devant le "café del sol" où nous mangeons enfin nos tapas. Bienvenue au royaume de l'absurde!!!

    Well protected from 30+ knots of south wind and SE swell. Plenty of sand just east of the swim buoys. Nothing special about the anchorage other than it’s protection from south wind.

    Not the most beautiful spot to anchor but provisions are very close (Lidl & Mercadona 10min by foot) and protected from swell. Not so much from wind though, but the anchor has a good grip in the sand (we had gusts up to 30 knots). Overall totally fine to anchor here if the swell is not coming from the east.
