    Very rolly anchorage. In the mornings, fishermen and tourist delivering ferries create quite some waves. In the afternoon very frequent wind change, wind picks up almost every day, averaging 10 knots more then predicted. Several moorings available, but be careful with the condition of the lines to the concrete mooring blocks. On the plus side: close to the jetty and beach where the dingy can be parked for nice walks on this beautiful island.

    Agree with Rosalee. Had 2 nights without wind and a bumping noisy mooring buoy. Lifting the buoy out the water helps against the noise but not against the bumping on the waves. Be sure there is some wind. Trails on the island are beautiful!

    OK mooring place. Buoys are weighed down by concrete and attached at the bottom by rope. Loads of small fishing boats whizzing around in the early morning close to the buoys which woke us up. Not the most peaceful anchorage.
