    Beautiful anchorage with very good protection from the N NW wind. We didn’t have any swell.

    After a long trip to round Cap St Vincent Sagres looks like a good option. However, do not anchor to the west of the bay as the pilot books suggest, it is dangerous! Even a light swell will set you rocking violently. Anchor in sand in the middle of the bay where holding is very good. Although protected from strong winds from North to Northwest there is still quite a down draft but we lay to anchor overnight when the swell forecast was under one metre. There are restaurants ashore and we took the dinghy to the eastern side of the beach away from the hotel and swimmers.
