    The bottom is rocky, and it is kind of a hit and miss to find some sand spots, but once you do, you are in good shelter from the winds, but not from the swell - it rolls a lot. It is possible to access the beach with the dinghy, but it is difficult: with the low tide the rocks and the sea urchins show up, making it difficult to take the dinghy ashore. Having said that, it is a great access to visit town, and there’s a great Conad nearby. The city is charming and well worth a visit. Ah, someone commented that the water is disgusting, and it is not - it is clear and beautiful, nice for a swim.

    Beautiful village, highly recommended !!! The anchorage is not very protected, however, there is a small port nearby.

    Village magnifique, fortement recommandé !!! Le mouillage est peu protégé par contre, il y a cependant un petit port à côté.

    Anchorage at the foot of the splendid city. We found a nice patch of sand to anchor by about 6-7m, but lots of rocks where you have to be careful not to anchor. Mooring a little bit rolling but the city is really worth it. And contrary to what has been said, the water is not disgusting and the funds are very beautiful and very much alive. In short, a real crush on this stopover! In addition, we were alone at anchor at the end of July!

    Mouillage au pied de la splendide ville. Nous avons trouvé une belle tâche de sable pour mouiller par environ 6-7m, mais beaucoup de roches où il faut faire attention à ne pas prendre l'ancre. Mouillage un peu rouleur mais la ville en vaut vraiment la peine. Et contrairement à ce qui a été dit, l'eau n'est pas dégueulasse et les fonds sont très beaux et bien vivants. Bref un vrai coup de coeur pour cette escale ! De plus nous étions seuls au mouillage fin juillet !
