    Protected anchorage, very little swell enters but there is some disturbance from power boats that drive through the anchorage at planing speeds. The fishing boats leave Pollença between 0330 and 0500 and also cause some disturbance. Good holding in 3 to 5m

    As others have said this is a beautiful setting, sometimes spoiled by noisy party boats, fast boats and water skiers; thankfully they don’t stay long. The holding is good, but when the wind changes direction our anchor (rocna 25kg) would pop out full of mud and not reset. Good facilities with easy access ashore. Excellent self service laundry called “Tot Clean” at Carrer de Vicenç Buades, 3. Super street market on Wednesday mornings in Plaça Miguel Capllonch - really excellent fresh fruit and vegetables.

    The only thing that lets this anchorage down for us is the holding. The seabed is really mixed and getting a solid ‘hook’ is not guaranteed. The wind shifts 180° quite frequently, making for a nervous and unsettling experience. The anchorage itself is really pretty and not too far to dinghy to shore, where there is a good dinghy dock, plenty of restaurants and bars, a good supermarket, a laundry and a decent chandlery. A good night’s sleep is not guaranteed though - which is why we have only given this 3 stars.
