    Anchored here for an overnight stop on our way east. Surprisingly clean water. Anchored fairly close to the river exit, good holding in sand. Some rocking, probably due to constant shipping traffic. Constant industrial noise, but not unbearable. Looks to be interesting sand dune exploration to be had ashore, but we didn’t stay long enough.

    Good anchoring, quiet and safe. There is background noise 24/24 of the factories. The best place to anchor in the entire bay of Algeciras.

    Buen fondeo, tranquilo y seguro. Hay ruido de fondo 24/24 de las factorias. El mejor sitio para fondeo de toda la bahía de Algeciras.

    Good shelter from westerly swell, very good holding in hard sand. Beware of sustained Easterly winds as the swell still comes around punta Europa, and the wind becomes very gusty in the wake of the Gibraltar rock.
