    If conditions are right this is an amazing anchorage. Ashore there is a spectacular walk and the staff in the cafe are very friendly. If conditions are clear you can easily identify the large sand patch. The sand patch ranges from about 4/5m close in but drops to about 15m further out. If the wind is coming offshore that would mean you may have to let out more scope. This increases your swinging range in an already tight anchorage so a second anchor would be advisable to limit the swinging range. Another potential option would be to anchor further in and take a stern line ashore to the rock between the stone beach and the sandy beach. Having casually assessed it myself in the dingy, the depth in the area in front (east) of the rock appears to be 3-5m with no underwater rocks identified. Obviously do your own assessment in the dingy first. On the southern side (left as you enter) there is a rocky shelf underwater that extends about 15m from shore. Be careful of this. Our 1st day here the wind was offshore and light and we had an amazing calm night under the stars. However the second day wind came from east, force 4, with some chop. We dragged anchor despite resetting for new conditions and initially bedding in well. This may suggest that there is a relatively thin layer of sand over rock. We moved around to Cala Portinatx.

    Treasure pretty anchorage for lunch. Few people, but little room!

    Trésor joli mouillage pour déjeuner. Peu de monde, mais peu de place!
