    Superb and wild mooring very well sheltered from the northwest to east winds. Anchor on sandy bottom between Preveto Island and the coast. It's free and better sheltered than buoy fields.

    Mouillage superbe et sauvage très bien abrité des vents de Nord-Ouest à Est. Ancrer sur fond de sable entre l'île Preveto et la côte. C'est gratuit et mieux abrité que les champs de bouées.

    Very beautiful bay, sheltered from the winds of the I and IV quadrant. About 4-5 meters of crystalline water above Posidonia meadows. Holding the small island of Preveto to the west, it is possible to enter the bay for free anchorage, while on the other side there is the buoys field. At the beginning of August we were the only ones in the harbor at night, then in the morning around 9-10 the arrival of dinghies and boats began. Overall quiet, with lots of looks and some octopus around the boat. Recommended.

    Baia molto bella, riparata dai venti dei I e IV quadrante. Circa 4-5 metri d’acqua cristallina sopra praterie di poseidonia. Tenendo l’isolotto di Preveto a ovest è possibile entrare in baia per l’ancoraggio libero, mentre dall’altro lato c’è il campo boe. A inizio Agosto eravamo gli unici in rada la notte, poi la mattina verso le 9-10 è iniziato l’arrivo di gommoni e barche. Nel complesso tranquillo, con molte occhiate e qualche polipetto attorno alla barca. Consigliata.

    Mooring only during the day The guys on the reserve are checking if we have the license but at this place, we can only stay the day. We have the choice: either to take a buoy next to the well-marked buoy field or to go to the bay east of Lunga Bay: Lido Burrone. There is algae but also sand squares where to anchor. For 1 week: 80 euros for a sailboat. It can be done online (translation in French with google chrome) because the site is in itlaien. There is an office on Favignana, 3 piazza europa closed between 12 and 15h.

    Mouillage de jour seulement. Les gars de la réserve vérifient si on a le permis mais à cet endroit, on ne peut que rester la journée. On a le choix : soit de prendre une bouée juste à coté dans le champ de bouée bien balisé ou soit aller dans la baie à l'est de la baie Lunga : Lido Burrone. Il y a des algues mais aussi des carrés de sable où planter son ancre. Pour 1 semaine : 80 euros pour un voilier. On peut le faire en ligne (traduction en français avec google chrome) car le site n'est qu'en itlaien. Il y a un bureau sur Favignana, 3 piazza europa fermé entre 12 et 15h.
