    Savvy of London | Sailboat — 18 m

    We we first motor sailed into the island from Positano there were hundreds of motorboats coming across from Naples. Hundreds. We went to the south east side and it was terrible. Hundreds of motorboats charging into anchorages without the courtesy of slowing down or giving way to a much larger sailing boat. We thought we would need to leave the island but tried this anchorage. It was still packed with dozens and dozens of boats, mostly small day boats. But before sunset nearly all but us and one other 100ft yacht had left. It was then a delightful anchorage. A beautiful breeze and not too much swell from passing boats. We were able to dinghy to a smaller section of beach to the north for a picnic to watch the sunset. What looks like a beach kiosk is closed. There’s no real beach entry during the day for a dinghy and we saw someone being told to leave the beach with theirs. Paddle boarding would have been problematic during the day with all the chop. Kayaking might work to get to shore. No issues with requiring a permit to anchor.
