    Despite fair depths given by Navionics charts this place was not reachable during low water. Even the 2 bouys gave wrong route, just a big sandbank between green and red buoys. Run on the ground... Back on my path and anchored in front of beach Lagos

    Very good hold of the anchor in the mud but a lot of chains are lying in the background. Not a lot of space even at the end of September. Very pleasant village but the water of the ria very cloudy.

    Très bonne tenue de l'ancre dans la vase mais beaucoup de chaînes trainent dans le fond. Pas beaucoup de place même fin septembre. Village très agréable mais eau de la ria très trouble.

    Beautiful anchorage with safe holding in sand, lots of fishing and tourist boats, but does not really cause a problem . Shops bars and restaurants near by and jetty’s to leave a dingy, came for a few days, now been here over a week.
