    This is marked as an anchorage on Navionics charts and on Navily, but it’s much shallower than charted, and the Sicilian Coast Guard contend that it is a “danger area” and prohibited. If your visit here causes you to interact with the local Comandante you may regret it. Expect many, many hours at the Coast Guard office listening to loud phone conversations, often with more than one mobile phone at a time, while every spurious detail or possibility is exhaustively explored in the context of various arbitrary but large fines that may or may not materialise. Expect visits to your boat that reveal almost absolute ignorance of what a sailing boat is or does. Expect links to extraordinarily expensive “help”. Recommendation: don’t do it!

    Very good behavior by 4m of bottom and well sheltered, close to the beach, restaurants and supply nearby.

    Très bonne tenue par 4m de fond et bien abrité, proche de la plage, restaurants et approvisionnement à proximité.

    Good holding in sand. One can anchor between the two spots shown and it's all good. Exposed to north wind and swell. Crystal clear water. The caves on the north side of the island are worth a visit with the dinghy, very pretty!
