    Very nice anchorage, just in front of Shell Beach. It’s part of the port, so you’ll have to pay (quite a lot) if you don’t leave before they come in the morning to check. Beautiful little beach with shells, but busy. The restaurant is expensive, but only a short walk to town. 5-10 min with the dinghy to the port. They installed buoys while we were there to prevent boats from anchoring too close to the beach. Not much protection left then, because you need to anchor outside the sheltered area. Still, much better and quiet than the overcrowded port area.
