    Anchorage in front of the fort of Sao Tiago Sand bottoms, rocks (near the coast) do not hesitate to anchor in 12m of water. Pontoon for annex to the port (far enough still 1Mn) We stayed 1 week .... the evening the view of Funchal is beautiful.

    Mouillage devant le fort de sao tiago Fonds de sable, roches (près de la côte) ne pas hésiter à planter l’ancre dans 12m d’eau. Ponton pour annexe au port (assez loin quand même 1Mn) On y est restés 1 semaine ....le soir la vue sur Funchal est magnifique .

    anchorage well sheltered from northeasterly winds, but not swell. Do not hesitate to anchor for a second, anchor to limit the roll. By cons, there is 12m deep. We stayed 10 days, possibility of mounting the annex on the beach, behind the rip rap. Next to Fort San Tiago, bar of the "beach" communal, with possibility of taking a shower (cold). Beer at 1 € 👍

    mouillage bien abrité des vents de Nord-est, mais pas de la houle. Ne pas hésiter à mouiller une seconde, ancre pour limiter le roulis. Par contre, il y a 12m de profondeur. On est resté 10 jours, possibilité de monter l'annexe sur la grève, derrière l'enrochement. A côté du Fort San Tiago, bar de la "plage" communale, avec possibilité de prendre une douche (froide). Bière à 1€ 👍

    SAFARI | Sailboat — 10.5 m

    We have stayed here for 2 weeks. Anchoring protected from the wind but not from the swell. Sometimes very uncomfortable but we prefer to be here than in the marina which is very small and there is generally no place. Sand bottom and some stones but good support. We have not had any problems.

    Nos hemos quedado aquí durante 2 semanas. Fondeo protegido del viento pero no de la marejada. A veces muy inconfortable pero nosotros preferimos estar aquí que en la marina la cual es muy pequeña y generalmente no hay sitio. Fondo de arena y algunas piedras pero buena sujeción. No hemos tenido ningún problema.
