Nearly 0,5m waves when 4bft. Windswept in all directions. Good holding on sand and mud, bad on weed. You'll never know. Beautiful, calm island, long, sandy beach.

In September with 20 knots of wind, some boats skidded. There is little background but it is essential to put more than 30 meters of chain.

En septembre avec 20 noeuds de vent, quelques bateaux ont dérapé. Il y a peu de fond mais il est indispensable de mettre plus de 30 mètres de chaîne.

Excellent anchorage although a little crowded in mid August as you'd expect but still plenty of room. The island of Culatra is beautiful and the beach on the Atlantic side is too, which is accessed via a delightful boardwalk. Holding was good in deep mud but some boats were dragging.

Super nice mooring, a little busy but there is room. Passage of planes approaching Faro but calm at night. Gives access to Culatra Island and its very active fishing village which is a feast of authenticity. Many tourists arrive from 11 am to go to the beach on the other side of the island. To visit before!

Mouillage super sympa, un peu chargé mais il y a de la place. Passage des avions en approche de Faro mais calme la nuit. Donne accès à l’île de Culatra et à son village de pêcheur très actif qui est un régal d’authenticité. Les touristes arrivent nombreux à partir de 11 heures pour aller à la plage de l’autre côté de l’île. A visiter avant !

Many people in season but also many places. Beautiful walks on Culatra. No need to go to the city. No space

Beaucoup de monde en saison mais aussi beaucoup de places. Balades magnifiques sur Culatra. Inutile d'aller à la ville. Pas de place

Excellent holding in thick, gloopy mud (we held fast in 40 knot winds), very quiet and peaceful in February/March.

Ankeeuntergrund super holds very well. Strong electricity entry. Observe tides. Unfortunately, it stinks somewhere to sulfur and unaffected it is here for a long time no longer ..

Beautiful, very small exotic island with very friendly people. Avoid the village feast early August if you are an early layer: they are sacred revelers!

Magnifique, petite ile très dépaysante avec des gens très accueillants. Éviter la fête du village début aout si vous êtes un couche tôt : ce sont des sacrés fêtards !

Wonderful mooring, entrance to the channel to be taken with caution, risk of strong current at rising and falling tide. Best, go to the slack. Near the island, boats were stranded. We have 1.75 draft. Island to visit that plunge you in Brazil! Change of scenery!

Mouillage magnifique, entrée du chenal à prendre avec précaution, risque de fort courant à marée montante et descendante. Le mieux, passer à l'étale. Proche de l'île, des bateaux était échoués. Nous avons 1,75 de tirant d'eau. Île à visiter qui vous plongent au Brésil ! Dépaysement certain !
