    We anchored further to the east, just off the beach outside the swimming zone. There is a large Gadis and when we were there (Thursday) there was a large, well attended street market, with excellent fresh produce stalls (other stalls as well, even one specialising in trainers). We also filled up with diesel in the harbour (excellent price), but they do not like filling Jerry jugs from the dinghy, they want you to take your yacht alongside, it’s a stone wall, with limited Spanish we managed to fill the jerry jugs instead. We weren’t sure where to land the dinghy, the beach would have been OK but we knew we needed to do a large shop, so we tied up the dinghy in the harbour, and tried not to impede anyone’s access, no one seemed to mind. Anchoring so close to the Gadis will however mean you will be disturbed by the wash from the multitude of ferries that take passengers out to the Atlantic islands, so we use this as a provisioning anchorage only, moving on to somewhere else for the night.
