    Although its says in the chart that anchoring is not allowed, we could spend one night along two other boats. Easy access to the marina through the old walls (great view) and from the marina to the city. A little busy though with jetskis and leisure boats.

    Protected anchorage with easy access to Ceuta. Just take your dinghy through the spectacular canal along the old city walls to the other side of Ceuta into the marina. Summer evenings and weekends with lots of jet skis and pleasure boats creating swell. According to charts, anchoring is prohibited. We did not see any fish traps or net (July 2019).

    Very scenic and protected anchorage. Good holding over sand especially west of the Channel in 5 to 8m. But beware of the big stones close to the swimming area! You can leave the dinghy at the marina for 21€ a day... (go there through the impressive Channel). Beware of your belongings! Dinghys and their Outboarder tend to disappear at night, if not proper locked on your boat!
