    Fantastic anchoring, crystal clear waters and bottom of sand and rock / algae between 7 and 4 m., Very protected from the west and north. Lovely and almost untouched surroundings, in the whole gulf between Malfatano and Spartivento. CAUTION, good anchoring in sand area, but the areas of seaweed settle in irregular rocks with great fall, and there is much difference in height from one part to another, joining funds of 5 m. immediately close to 2-3 funds. In addition the protrusions of the rocks can enrcar the chain and anchor complicating the lifting maneuver. There are mosquitoes and a powerful light very annoying in a chiringuito of the beach. Still worth the funding.

    Fantástico fondeo, aguas cristalinas y fondo de arena y roca/algas entre 7 y 4 m., muy protegido de poniente y norte. Entorno precioso y casi virgen sin urbanizar, en todo el golfo entre Malfatano y Spartivento. PRECAUCIÓN, buen fondeo en zona de arena, pero las zonas de alga asientan en rocas irregulares con gran caida, y hay mucha diferencia de altura de unas partes a otras, juntándose fondos de 5 m. inmediatamente cerca de fondos de 2-3. Además los salientes de las rocas pueden enrrocar la cadena y ancla complicando la maniobra de levantado. Hay mosquitos y una luz potente muy molesta en un chiringuito de la playa. Aún así merece la pena el fondeo.
