Nice anchorage. Fund of good holding by 5 to 7 m. Beware of the rocks 100m from the shore in front of the orange house, on the left. Take anti mosquito to walk by the beach to Porto Levante. Renter cars, all businesses. Do not land his trash.

Joli mouillage. Fonds de bonne tenue par 5 à 7 m. Attention aux rochers à 100m du rivage devant la maison orangée, à gauche. Prendre anti moustique pour aller à pied par la plage à Porto Levante. Loueur voitures, tous commerces. Ne pas débarquer ses poubelles.

Nice anchorage good holding, but mosquitoes can carry you away in the early evening. Climb up to see the crater a must.

Mid August, very busy! Noisy from the beach bar but good holding and great view of the smouldering vulcano. Amazing sunsets.

Well placed to climb to the crater of the volcano (1 hour climb). A lot of people at anchor and there was an evening outdoors on the coast, a source of some noise, but otherwise, beautiful water and beautiful scenery.

Bien placé pour monter au cratère du volcan (1h de montée). Pas mal de monde au mouillage et il y avait une soirée en plein air sur la côte, source de quelques nuisances sonore mais sinon, belle eau et superbe paysage.

Very good anchorage on sand bottom in the middle of the bay, by 10 meters of water. Ideal place to leave the boat to climb the volcano (3 hours, including the crater ride). Too bad there is a lot of tourist boat traffic and the diving club, they go flush at high speed, creating beautiful waves.

Très bon mouillage sur fond de sable au milieu de la baie, par 10 mètres d’eau. Endroit idéal pour laisser le bateau pour faire l’ascension du volcan (3 heures, y compris le tour du cratère). Dommage qu’il y ait beaucoup de trafic de bateau de touristes et du club de plongée, ceux-ci vous passent à ras à vitesse élevée, créant des belles vagues.

Excellent anchorage in settled weather. Anchored 8m in sand with great holding. Beautiful sunset views. Snorkel anchor once set as some rocks out there. Ignore Navionics comment about anchoring forbidden during summer - anchored 2 nights with no bother ( as did about 20 others!).

This anchorage is narrower than it appears on the charts, because of the reefs which surround it and the shallowness at the bottom of the bay. Better to arrive early. Note, one day in August, disco thoroughly in the bars surround the bay, until 3 pm.

Ce mouillage est plus étroit qu'il n'y paraît sur les cartes, à cause des écueils qui le cernent et de la faible profondeur au fond de la baie. Mieux vaut arriver tôt. A noter, un jour d’août, la disco à fond dans les bars ceinturent la baie, jusqu'à 3 h.

Very nice anchorage. A little frequented. Superb view of Volcano (Fumerolles, flows). Beware of mosquitoes at the end of the day on land ...

Great anchorage! Person out of season. Small pontoon for annex with visor of the volcano and refueling! If the rising waves swell it is necessary to go on the other side

Super mouillage ! Personne hors saison. Petit ponton pour annexe avec visière du volcan et ravitaillement ! Si la houle d'ouest de lève il faut aller de l'autre côté

Nice anchorage in the quiet and without swell. (In calm weather). Nice view on the crater just above and easily accessible. Anchorage on a sandy bottom. Be careful, stay in the center of the bay because there are rocks and large pebbles on the northern part.

Joli mouillage au calme et sans houle. (Par temps calme). Jolie vue sur le cratère juste au dessus et facilement accessible. Mouillage sur fond de sable fin. Attention, rester au centre de la baie car il y a des rochers et gros cailloux sur la partie nord.

Cala fairly spacious and generous, just for that reason too much cheated. Easy anchoring and well repaired. Beautiful location, suggestive of the black beach.

Cala abbastanza spaziosa e capiente, proprio per questo anche molto gettonata. Facile l'ancoraggio e abbastanza riparata. Bella location, suggestiva la spiaggia nera.
