    This spot looked perfect amongst all the anchoring spots in the prevailing weather and the Island did provide shelter from swell and wind, however.... We saw one small orange buoy closer in which was in use and a larger white buoy in the swell line. On inspection it was in poor condition and with a frayed rope as the only eye to pass a line through. This would suggest that in 2021 with few visitors, maintenance has not been done, we did not feel safe taking the moorng and had to proceed to a marina as there were no other options close by that were protected from SE swell. Do not rely on this spot. But the location itself was great, a shame we could not stay and enjoy.

    The island of the seagulls, we arrived at noon and there were few anchoring buoys, about 5, and all occupied, as it is a marine reserve you should not drop anchor, it is also rock bottom, the buoys are free, we returned in the afternoon And a wonder, the buoys were free and the island is deserted when the restaurant closes and the tourists leave, it is only for the seagulls, from the buoys you can go swimming to the island, it is close, but to the thousands of seagulls who inhabit the island do not like our presence and are hostile, they begin to gasp and fly close to our heads, even so the experience and the impressive views are worth going. Good protection from the waves in the mooring buoys.

    La isla de las gaviotas, llegamos al medio dia y habia pocas boyas de fondeo, unas 5, y todas ocupadas, al ser reserva marina no se debe echar el ancla, además es fondo de roca, las boyas son gratuitas, volvimos por la tarde y una maravilla, las boyas estaban libres y la isla se queda desierta al cerrar el restaurante e irse los turistas, se queda solo para las gaviotas, desde las boyas se puede ir nadando a la isla, está cerca,pero a las miles de gaviotas que habitan la isla no les gusta nuestra presencia y se muestran hostiles, empiezan a gaznar y volar cerca de nuestras cabezas, aun así la experiencia y las vistas impresionantes, vale la pena ir. Buena proteccion del oleaje en las boyas de fondeo.

    We arrived on the island on Friday evening in October. All buoys free and, except for a few anglers, absolute peace and quiet (birds on the island). Easy to moor, but on this day there was absolutely no wind so of course absolutely calm lying in front of the island. We counted 8 buoys, but for different sized boats. Two buoys for large yachts.

    Wir sind am Freitag Abend im Oktober auf der Insel angekommen. Alle Bojen frei und ausser ein paar Anglern absolute Ruhe (Vögel auf der Insel). Einfaches festmachen, jedoch war an diesem Tag absolut kein Wind daher natürlich absolut ruhiges Liegen vor der Insel. Wir haben 8 Bojen gezählt, jedoch für unterschiedlich große Boote. Zwei Bojen für große Yachten.
