    The pier is in deep water 9m all round even on the inside. It’s a little high for smaller boats as it’s a big step up to the top and you will need to pick a spot against the main piers, larger boats no problem. You need to be a little creative to tie off as there are only a few very large bollards but lots of broken concrete edged with steel reinforcement to tie to. We tied to the inside of the dock, the tourist boat arrived around 12 noon with about 10 visitors and backed in beside us mooring with their anchor but lots of space. Spoke to some locals at the restaurant and they advised that you should not go in the north of the bay close to where the navy base is. From September 30 to approx end of June the area returns to more active military operations and there may be some problems stopping but generally it is ok on the dock near the castle. We stayed several nights on the concrete dock near the castle and went to the caves and beaches towards the base. There was a military vessel patrolling the day we arrived but they ignored us.

    We were told this anchorage as one of the most beautiful in Albania. Even though the bay is pretty with the castle to visit, the site is overlooked by the road and not very clean. We wanted to anchor in the north of the bay near a military base and a nice turquoise water: sirens and loudspeaker to tell us to leave .... really unwelcoming atmosphere. So we went to the dock where two other boats had the same mishap. Quay concrete high enough and quiet night.

    On nous avait cité ce mouillage comme l’un des plus beaux d’Albanie. Même si la baie est jolie avec le château à visiter, le site est surplombé par la route et pas très propre. Nous avons voulu mouiller dans le nord de la baie près d’une base militaire et un joli coin d’eau turquoise : sirènes et haut parleur pour nous dire de partir....ambiance vraiment pas accueillante. Du coup nous nous mis sur le quai où deux autres bateaux avaient eu la même mésaventure. Quai en béton assez haut et nuit tranquille.
