    Took a couple of days to receive permission, followed by request to anchor online for immediate response. https://www.iatlanticas.es/html/index5032.html?option=com_wrapper&view=wrapper&Itemid=200077&lang=en Small supermarket at campground plus cafe/bar. Great walk to Faro de Cies for views takes around one hour each way. Anchorage is good holding and ferries are frequent during day. Fishermen motoring close to boats at anchor is odd.

    Anchorage little protected from the north wind but good sand bottom. Some waves at the ferry crossings but quite bearable. The island and the anchorage are beautiful and peaceful outside of ferry schedules (10:30 am - 7:30 pm). Perfect location to enjoy the sunrise and sunset on the totally deserted das Rodas beach.

    Mouillage peu protégé du vent du Nord mais fond de sable de bonne tenue. Quelques vagues aux passages des ferries mais tout à fait supportable. L’île et le mouillage sont magnifiques et tranquilles en dehors des horaires des ferries (10h30 - 19h30). Emplacement parfait pour profiter du lever et du coucher de soleil sur la plage das Rodas totalement déserte.

    The site is remarkable and very well preserved. The beach is sumptuous. Excellent anchorage ... despite a few jet-skis showing off at full speed, the small fishermen who come to pick up their nets early in the morning along the beach buoys, and the maintenance of the campsite with the noisy thermal brush cutter! I recommend +++ The procedure to obtain the permit is easy and fast!

    Le site est remarquable et très bien préservé. La plage est somptueuse. Excellent mouillage …malgré quelques jet-skis qui friment à toute vitesse, les petits pêcheurs qui viennent relever leurs filets tôt le matin le long des bouées de la plage, et l’entretien du camping à la débroussailleuse thermique bruyante! Je recommande +++ La procédure pour obtenir le permis est aisée et rapide !
