    We anchored here for three days as we found it more comfortable than the marina which suffers badly from the swell. While the wind was light it was perfectly comfortable, and having stayed in the marina previously they were happy for us to use their dinghy dock, but others have been charged. The residents of the marina are very friendly, the marina staff are all friendly too, but tasked with extracting as much money as possible from visitors. The seabed shelves very gently here, so expect to feel like you are in a safe spot if the swell picks up from the South or East.On our visit, we saw hundreds of jellyfish. We were able to fill up with fuel and water in the marina, and visited their restaurant which has lovely views but is pricey.
