    Nice anchorage in front of Figueira beach, when the main anchorage is too busy. Sand and grass fund. Beach possibly naturist. Pathways to the rest of the island. Warning: the Navionics map shows an anchorage under Monte Agudo. This is a gross mistake. Do not venture there, it is dotted with pitfalls.

    Joli mouillage devant la plage de Figueira, quand le mouillage principal est trop fréquenté. Fonds de sable et d'herbe. Plage éventuellement naturiste. Chemins d'accès au reste de l'île. Attention : la carte Navionics montre un mouillage sous le Monte Agudo. C'est une erreur grossière. Ne surtout pas s'y aventurer, c'est parsemé d'écueils.
