    There aren’t many anchoring options in Porto Colom with most of the space taken up by mooring buoys. In August 2020 there was plenty of depth (4m) in the centre outside the swimming buoys. Space is limited by the Posidonia grass with anchoring rightly prohibited anywhere but sand. The water isn’t very clear due to all the boat traffic kicking up the sand but you can make out the sand patches. In peak season you will have port authorities check your anchor and chain aren’t in the grass. Pretty spot with excellent holding and a short tender ride across to the quay. Some wash early in the morning from fishing boats.
