    This anchorage ticks a lot of boxes! The holding (in sand) is excellent, the water is crystal clear, the scenery is stunning and access to shore is easy. We were able to leave our dinghy at the yacht club, which is a lovely bar and restaurant (we always bought drink out of courtesy when leaving the dinghy) There are plenty of shops, restaurants, cafes, ice cream parlours and shops within easy walking distance, including a huge Mercadona and Consum just 1.5km away. In a SW wind, it becomes untenable, but shelter can be found around the other side of the rock. Don’t miss a walk up the 333m Peñón de Ifac limestone rock - the views are spectacular.

    Great Shelter from N / NE. Good holding.

    Anchorage in the West right out of the port, very good behavior in sand. Medium environment (except the beautiful rock of course) but protected from north-west to south-east by the east. Avoid by swell from south to west. Easy access to the beach or the port in annex. Not too crowded mid July, unlike other anchorages.

    Mouillage à l'Ouest dès la sortie du port, tres bonne tenue dans du sable. Environnement moyen (sauf le beau rocher bien-sûr) mais protégé du nord-ouest au sud-est par l'Est. Eviter par houle de sud à ouest. Acces facile à la plage ou au port en annexe. Pas trop encombré mi juillet, contrairement à d'autres mouillages.
