    Nice anchor bay. A lot of motor boats during the day. Lots of space in the evening. Beware of the large rocks overgrown with seaweed on the bottom. Good grip therefore only on the sand patches. The depth information in the Navionics charts is not very reliable. In the 5 m area we have found a place with only 3.5 m.

    Schöne Ankerbucht. Tagsüber sehr viele Motorboote. Abends viel Platz. Achtung viele grosse Felsen mit Seegrass bewachsen am Grund. Guter Halt daher nur auf den Sandflecken. Die Tiefenangaben in der Navionics Karten nicht sehr verlässlich. Wir haben im 5 m Bereich eine Stelle mit lediglich 3.5 m gefunden.

    Pretty, fairly peaceful anchorage. A few boats during the day, 2/3 for the night. Anchor 4m deep, look for one of the many areas of sand. 20m of chain, a little swell but we did not move with 20kts of easterly wind every afternoon for 3 days and at night nothing. There is a very practical little pontoon for the annex in front of the large white glazed house, a pretty park and a beach under the pines, bar / restaurant with terrace on the sea and Spar mini-market 200m on the left of the pontoon. also go to dock on the small island to go around on foot.

    Joli mouillage assez paisible. Quelques bateaux en journée, 2/3 pour la nuit. Mouillage par 4m de fond, recherchez une des nombreuses zones de sable. 20m de chaîne, un petit peu de houle mais on n'a pas bougé avec 20kts de vent d'Est tous les après midi pendant 3 jours et la nuit plus rien. Il y a un petit ponton très pratique pour l'annexe devant la grande maison blanche vitrée, un joli parc et une plage sous les pins, bar/restaurant avec terrasse sur la mer et supérette Spar à 200m sur la gauche du ponton.Vous pouvez aussi aller accoster sur la petite île pour faire le tour à pied.

    Gets bouncy and noisy during the day due to day trip boats, jet skis and ferry traffic. At night it is stunning, quiet and flat. The sea bed is patches of sand, weed and big boulders, we recommend swimming on the anchor to check what the sea bed is. During the season at weekends a rib will check that you have not set your anchor on Posidonia. UPDATE: having been checked the day before we spent the night here, the next morning the Posidonia rib told us that not only did the anchor have to be in sand, but the chain as well! This would make it impossible to anchor here as none of the patches of sand have sufficient diameter for the chain to not touch the grass 🤷
