    Amor De Mi Vida | Sailboat — 15 m

    Beautiful anchorage with not formed sea. Keep distance from the ground. In July almost daily controls C.P. and G.F.

    Bellissimo ancoraggio con mare non formato. Tenere distanza da terra. A Luglio controlli quasi giornalieri C.P. e G.F.

    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!

    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!
