very nice anchorage, quite pretty. Wet preferably northwest of cala.

Mouillage très sympa, assez joli. Mouillez de préférence au nord ouest de la cala.

Puerto Genoves Anchorage (Cabo de Gata). We stayed here for the night after a calm sail with a south westerly breeze. Very sheltered and calm with only a couple of fishing pots to be seen. The bottom is good holding in hard sand, we could see the anchor in 4 meters. We took a trip ashore in the dinghy to walk the dog. Quite a lot of rubbish on the tide line. I imagine this anchorage and the beach would be busier in the summer months. Very picturesque.

This anchorage is simply stunning. It has a panoramic view and a secluded beach that is frequented by people who have travelled to the public car park there. The beach is frequented by families and naturists. There are no facilities here - no public toilets and not a waste bin in sight! Yet it is immaculate. Great holding in 5m of sand, but exposed when the swell comes from the North/NE. There were lots of jellyfish in the water, which prevented us from fully enjoying this bay. Not to be missed though - it’s a very special place to lay your anchor!

It is better to anchor as close as possible to the rocky protection of the south and therefore get away from the beach because in the morning the swell can return.

Il vaut mieux mouiller le plus proche possible de la protection rocheuse du sud et donc s'éloigner de la plage car le matin la houle peut rentrer.

Magnificent wetting, night arrival, without anxiety. No time to go to the beach, wild environment ... Surrounded by mountains, unfortunately for us East swell, woke up at 6am ... So we set sail ... Good luck!

Magnifique mouillage, arrivée de nuit, sans inquiétude. Pas le temps d'aller sur la plage, environnement sauvage... Entouré de montagnes, malheureusement pour nous houle d'Est, réveillé à 6h... Donc on a mis les voiles... Bon vent !
