    We even weren’t close to drop the anchor, when a pilot boat approached us and informed us that anchoring is prohibited. This applies to both sides of the Punta de Tarifa island. On the east side, fines are doubled because it‘s also prohibited to anchor close to the marina entrance, even if not blocking or interfering with traffic. Strange that several independent issues of charts and regional guidebooks are all wrong... We checked the marina, but decided to not stay there, avoiding a potential damage to the boat or getting some of the cockroaches that even weren’t shy of bright daylight sun.

    Anchorage would of been ok but ten minutes after anchoring the police told us there is no anchoring and our option was on the outside of break-wall. Chose to move on.

    Mooring noted in the maps, yet banned by local authorities. They force us to settle on a stone bridge, high, dirty, without water and electricity. The police are nice because it is not supposed to allow it. Possibility to go to town with passport. To be discouraged

    Mouillage notée dans les cartes, pourtant interdit par les autorités locales. Ils nous obligent à nous installer sur un pontant en pierre, haut, sale, sans eau et électricité. La police est sympathique puisqu'elle n'est pas sensée l'autoriser. Possibilité d'aller en ville avec passeport. À déconseiller
