    Great anchorage and very protected from all but severe Northerlies. No swell and great holding. We sat a storm out here for 4 days and enjoyed the town, beach and walks. You can land your dinghy on the beach but no where to secure in there, or go around to the marina where we were allowed to leave it tied up to the ramp in the far left corner where it was much safef. Also much better than the rings behind Gadis supermarket (which we tried) a little further down the river on the left. Old town is very nice and everyone was very friendly. As a UK boat transiting during Covid, the local marina and Policia in town couldn’t have helped us more. Great place !

    Great Anchorage and like others is writing better to the eastern side. We dident have any bad swell at all. Really protected and good holding in sand/mud Left the dingy close to Gadis rings to tie up. But think of the tide. Wonderful old town
