    Nice little quiet cove out of sight of the ugly constructions that line most of the coastline of Tenerife. The hold is good on the sand. Be careful, however, of a rock that is two meters from the surface while the sand is 5 meters.

    Belle petite crique tranquille hors de la vue des affreuses constructions qui bordent presque tout le littoral de Ténérife. La tenue est bonne sur le sable. Faire attention tout de même à un rocher qui se trouve à deux mètres de la surface alors que le sable est à 5 mètres.

    Excellent hold, smooth mooring, things are moving! Nice walk on the rocks. Less calm than the one just after to the north, more rolling, more intimate, more charming. Anchor by more than 8m otherwise rocks. Nice cave which explodes with the swell on the south of the anchorage.

    Excellente tenue, mouillage bien rouleur, ça bouge! Jolie ballade sur les rochers. Moins calme que celui juste après au nord, plus rouleur, plus intimiste, plus de charme. Mouiller par plus de 8m sinon rochers. Joli grotte qui explose avec la houle sur le sud du mouillage.

    Nice anchorage without ugly hotel bunkers. Anchoring at about 7m depth. The anchorage is sand, a few large rocks on which the chain can get caught. Abandoned hippie caves. Space for a couple of boats. We had a slight swell because there was a little wind from the west.

    Schöner Ankerplatz ohne hässliche Hotelbunker. Ankern auf etwa 7m Tiefe. Ankergrund ist Sand, ein paar große Felsen an denen sich die Kette verfangen kann. Verlassene Hippie Höhlen. Platz für ein paar Boote. Wir hatten leichten Schwell da etwas Wind von Westen kam.
