    Nice anchorage if you want to be protected by the dike it is not that big so it is better not to arrive too late. In mid-July it is not the crowd on the ground, the visit of the fortress is essential. The "Modon" Resto is good, inexpensive and speaks French. A pontoon to accommodate the tender is welcome, but plan for threshing because it is very aggressive. You can also land on the sand.

    Joli mouillage si on veut être protégé par la digue ce n’est pas si grand alors il vaut mieux ne pas arriver trop tard. A mi juillet ce n’est pas la foule à terre, la visite de la forteresse s’impose. Le Resto « Modon » est bon, pas cher et parle Français. Un ponton pour recevoir l’annexe est le bienvenu mais prévoir par battages car il est très agressif. On peut aussi se poser sur le sable.

    Great anchorage on turquoise water. Sandy bottom. Swell can roll all day and night due to so many boats passing through now the Corinth is closed. We put out a kedge as there was plenty of room. Visit the fort, it’s amazing. Not very good for topping up supplies, a couple of small supermarkets

    Very beautiful anchorage, vast. Well sheltered, no swell in the bay. Fine sandy beaches and a pontoon where you can dock with the tender. Small drawback: the small rental boats that go by at high speed during the day but very quiet at night. Beautiful ruins of the fortress to visit (2 to 3 € entry).

    Très beau mouillage, vaste. Bien abrité, pas de houle dans la baie. Plages de sable fin et ponton où accoster avec l’annexe. Petit inconvénient: les petits bateaux de location qui passent à vive allure la journée mais très calme la nuit. Belles ruines de la forteresse à visiter (2 à 3€ l’entrée).
