    Beautiful anchorage. The only advice is to move to the east side to be better protected from the swell by the dike.

    Beau mouillage. Seul conseil, se mettre plutôt du côté est pour être mieux protègé de la houle par la digue.

    Amazing anchorage, we'll protected from the Atlantic swell (we stayed there when the waves had 5m on the bay of Biscay. Close to the beautiful town of viveiro, good supplies in Gadis supermarket

    Superb anchorage. Good holding in mud. Very well protected from swell thanks to the two long breakwaters, one for the fishing port, the 2nd for the marina. Shore side access - for the main town just land on the beach (use the marked dinghy channel through the swimming area). I spotted two laundromats here, one on Avenida de Porto, a bigger cleaner looking one on Rua Francesco Villasuso. - for the old town go up the marina channel, at mid to high water use the slipway adjacent to the Gadis hyper market, if there is not enough water use the slipway in the marina. From the marina slipway you have a choice of two hyper markets, and the tourist office is just nearby. Be sure to take a walk through the fascinating old town, and walk up to the church at Lourdes.
