    excellent anchorage. Sand on 4 Meters. Lots of space. In october no more floating jettys. We beached Dinghy on the Sandy beach.

    June 2019. Quiet anchorage with the approval of the Coast Guards. A very beautiful view of the village of Ponza by day and by night. Easy access to the pontoons.

    Juin 2019. Mouillage tranquille avec accord des Gardes Côtes. Une très belle vue sur le village de Ponza de jour comme de nuit. Accès en annexe vers les pontons facile.

    We arrived to find all of the pontoons had been removed. One of the phone numbers answered and offered a berth stern too at the boat yard but wouldn’t commit to a price so we decided to anchor. It’s out of season and there are 15 boats here at anchor! We found some space behind the dotted line shown in the Heikell book so all was well. I noticed there were some concrete blocks and some huge chain on the sea bed by the anchor so I assume you should be wary when dropping! We did call the harbour master and asked for berthing advice but although they had good English they just advised to anchor till 7pm... then what? There were a few boats moored behind one of the ferry’s against the wall, and a few boats anchored outside the Heikell dotted line. There are some small yellow buoys in the anchorage area but I’m not really sure what they mean or what they are for. The chart says “mooring buoys” I would have thought a popular anchorage in a busy harbour would warrant some better organisation. Anyway a quick walk ashore with the dog and the town looks very nice.
