    Clear water, but watch out for the seaweed, there are sand spots around the area for good anchorage. Convenient places nearby to put your dinghy.

    Watch out for thunderstorms at anchor. The wind becomes violent and unpredictable. And the anchors don't hold, too much algae.

    Attention aux orages au mouillage. Le vent devient violent et imprévisible. Et les ancres ne tiennent pas, trop d'algues.

    Well protected anchorage if you can get right in. The holding is poor on sea grass, even if you find sand patches it is very compacted and still won’t dig in, we were in light winds so just put more chain out. Easy to dinghy ashore and tie to the steps along the wall, then a short stroll into the old town. The tour boats like to to cruise through the anchorage and make swell. The airplanes from the nearby airport are not too annoying.
