Useful anchorage in the right weather, we were rolling around a little as all day the Straits had 20-30knots from the south, but holding was tested very well with sharp gusts offshore and we had no problems. Dropped at 8-9m, settled at 13-15m depth. Currently listening to LOUD accordion music and karaoke from a beach bar, it sounds like he’s performing in the saloon!

Good anchoring on sand and good protection. No current from Messina street. Nice and ling beach eith many restaurants. Ideal for a stop waiting the right current to pass. Many unique swordfish fishing boats. Scilla itself is beautiful

Anchored for one night after a late passage through the strait. To avoid being too close to the beach (for the authorities) you need to anchor over rock in deep water (15m ). Substantial gusts when winds from the southern and eastern sectors even if the background wind is minimal. Swell funnelled through the straits effects the anchorage even if the swell and wind are from the protected direction.
