    We found some bad holding, the anchor was dragging on rocks the first time, then holding well the second time but the chain was was still dragging over large rocky patches, perhaps we should’ve anchored closer to the beach but it was busy with swimmers etc in June. Definitely recommend going ashore and having a drink overlooking the anchorage & castle. We didn’t stay here overnight because of the anchor noise (dragging over rocks) and it looked like there might be beach bar crap music!

    Super mooring in 5m of water with an impregnable view on the castle. Quiet night and no swell, but must clear before 9:30. Time when the beach club wakes you up to the sound of the bugler and the bawls of GOs who do the gym on the beach in music.

    Super mouillage dans 5m d’eau avec une vue imprenable sur la château. Nuit calme et sans houle, mais il faut déguerpir avant 9h30. Heure où le club de plage vous réveille au son du clairon et des braillements des GO qui font la gym sur la plage en musique.

    Stayed one night. Lovely view of Castle. Yes it is noisy from the beach entertainment!! Light winds but still had rolling. Very uncomfortable. Good holding. Didn’t go into town but is right there.
