    Lovely anchorage in a great spot. Over 25 kts wind from the east, anchor held well and water still pretty calm. When the wind moved to the south it became a little rolly but not ridiculous. Obviously wouldn’t be much good with westerlies. Room for a handful of yachts only as the gap between the rocks on either side is rather small. Great city to explore and this anchorage is a god base. Much easier than the long walk from the marina.

    Another good anchorage in the Cadiz area. It is a narrow bay but plenty of room to swing at anchor. Good holding on sand and mud. Popular with locals and day sailors it can feel busy but still sufficiently clear if others to be safe. The beach is popular and you can leave your tender ashore tied to one of the many mooring points the locals use. The city of Cadiz is not to be missed with lots of historic sites and streets plus battlements and historic anchorages. The shopping is good and the market particularly good. Good prices are cheap/competitive and the night life seems active. Caleta beach and bay is a safe place to swim and the causeway is exposed at low tide showing ancient fishing traps. Local children find their thrills jumping from the bridge at high tide and this can go on until dark. Well worth a visit.
