    Very nice and emblematic anchorage because it is the Spain / Portugal border. Good behavior in sand in 30 knots northerly wind. On the other hand, take the southern pass for entry and exit. Dangerous North Pass because of the rocks ..... We did but the gendarmes told us that we were extremely lucky because even the locals did not venture there. Swell with rollers so choose the arrival time well ..... rather stall. Good navigation.

    Mouillage fort sympa et emblématique car c’est la frontière Espagne/Portugal. Bonne tenue dans sable par 30 noeuds vent du Nord. Par contre bien prendre la passe sud pour entrée et sortir. Passe Nord dangereuse car des rochers..... Nous l’avons fait mais les gendarmes nous ont dit que l’on a eu énormément de chance car même les locaux ne s’y aventurent pas. Houle avec rouleaux donc bien choisir l’heure d’arrivée.....plutôt à l’étal. Bonne navigation.

    Nice anchorage, with a beautiful forest of maritime pines. Delicate entry, follow the alignment carefully and do it at high tide. Anchoring and entry not recommended for large drafts.

    Beau mouillage, avec une belle forêt de pins maritimes. Entrée délicate, bien suivre l alignement et le faire a marée haute. Mouillage et entrée déconseillé aux grands tirants d eaux.

    Beautiful anchorage, the custom officers showed us the perfect anchorage and welcomed us to Portugal. Quite tricky to approach, lots of floating fishing net, and look up the tide. Navionics chart seems to be accurate.
