    IMAGINE | Sailboat — 11.99 m

    An essential mooring to visit the city. The inhabitants are very courteous. Do not forget the Napoleon Museum which did a lot for the island in public works during his "stay". On the other hand, the anchorage is very difficult to see uncomfortable with the going and going of the ferries all the day Proximity of a super market coop. The water is very dirty which in my opinion prohibited swimming. Vase background. Above 20 knots risk of stall. In strong wind it is better to keep a buoy paying at the bottom of the harbor. Tel: 393482609849. If you stay several days, take the bus (not expensive) that will take you to the foot of a cable car that takes you to the top of the island with a 360 degree view. Great visit!

    Mouillage incontournable pour visiter la ville. Les habitants sont très courtois. Ne pas oublier le musée Napoléon qui a fait beaucoup pour l’île en travaux publics pendant son "séjour" . En revanche le mouillage est très rouleur voir inconfortable avec le va et vient des ferrys toutes la journée Proximité d’un super marché coop. L’eau est très sale ce qui a mon avis interdit la baignade. Fond de vase. Au dessus de 20 nds risque de décrochage . Par fort vent mieux vaut retenir une bouée payante au fond de la rade. Tel: 393482609849. Si vous restez plusieurs jours, prenez le bus (pas cher) qui vous amène au pied d’un téléphérique qui vous conduit au sommet de l’île avec une vue à 360 degrés. Super visite !

    Bottom not very compact, ideal with good weather. Last night in the harbor with 20 knots: it was necessary to give chain for 6 lengths of the backdrop.

    Fondale poco tenitore, ideale con buona meteo. Passato notte in rada con 20 nodi: è stato necessario dare catena per 6 lunghezze del fondale.

    Anchorage of amenities to go to Portoferraio but not very friendly

    Mouillage de commodités pour aller à Portoferraio mais pas très sympathique
