    This is pretty much the only protection from a Southerly swell on this part of the coast. It looks small and marginal but in fact gave really good protection from 15kn SW and quite a bit of swell. Great holding in 7m. Pretty island village if you go ashore, or a very good transit stop. Highly recommended.

    Daytime anchorage to spend the day on the island. There is a lot of traffic and it can be difficult to find sand to anchor well. Good coverage of wind and waves from the S-SW (which we had the whole journey). Attention to ferries and their wake as it affects the rolling. There is good access to the beach and it is close to the port / pier. The island is tiny, so it works well for everything.

    Fondeo diurno para pasar el día en la isla. Hay mucho tráfico y puede ser complicado encontrar arena para fondear bien. Buena cobertura de viento y oleaje del S-SW (que nos tocó toda la travesía). Atención a los ferries y su estela pues afecta al balanceo. Hay buen acceso a la playa y está cerca del puerto/muelle. La isla es minúscula, así que va bien para todo.

    We anchored overnight here and had a very peaceful sleep and lovely visit ashore. The wind was from the South, but swell from the East, so the further in to shore, the better it was (after everyone left at 2000). Be careful of the holding if the wind shifts. We snorkelled on our anchor in several places and everywhere was weed; 90% over smooth rock with a few channels that your anchor might catch in and some thin gravel patches.
