    This anchorage is not recommended for Sailing Vessels with keel and a draft of more than 1,5m. There are dangerous reefs along the Bavaro Bay and needs local knowledge and pilotage to pass the very near channel. When inside the reef it is a beautiful anchorage with good holdings in 2-3m sand, close to the beach. We entered the channel with a monohull steel sailing yacht with retractable keel but with some apprehension. Important: ask for local guidance and pay them a tip 😉

    Running in is dangerous. Only at high tide and with pilots. No buoys. Slightly hit the reef with a one meter draft Anchorage is very nice. But also only suitable for catamarans, or with a lifting keel, sailing only with a pilot. The passages are very narrow. And indicate to the Despachio if you want to anchor there. The Navy is coming immediately.

    Einlaufen ist gefährlich. Nur bei Hochwasser, und mit Lotsen . Keine Bojen. Mit einem Meter Tiefgang das Riff leicht getroffen. Ankerplatz ist sehr schön. Aber auch nur für Katamarane, oder mit Hubkiel geeignet Auslaufen auch nur mit Lotsen. Die Durchfahrten sind sehr schmal. Und beim Despachio angeben, wenn man dort ankern will. Die Navy kommt sofort.
