    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.

    We anchored east of the harbour and a bit further out to sea in about 9m of water because it was so busy with day boats when we arrived at 5pm. Holding was very good, and good shelter from the wind, however even with very small swell from the East it was uncomfortable through the night, so I would only recommend staying if it’s flat. We took the dinghy ashore and beached it, it’s well worth a walk round the island, it’s beautiful, especially up on the wall near the church. As always, too many idiots on Jet Skis.
