    If a small swell from the south comes in, the island presents a little protection. Attention, background of posidonia. Anchored at the end of June, a little southerly wind. A violent thunderstorm and 1 minute later, 35 knots north. All the boats skidded towards the island with large tufts of Posidonia hanging from their anchors. It is better to go anchor at the end of the bay even if it moves more with a southerly flow.

    Si une petite houle du sud rentre, l'île présente une petite protection. Attention, fond de posidonie. Ancrés fin juin, petit vent de sud. Un orage violent et 1 minute après, 35 noeuds de nord. Tous les bateaux ont dérapé vers l île avec de grosses touffes de posidonie accrochées a leur ancre. Il vaut mieux aller mouiller au fond de la baie même si cela bouge plus avec un flux de sud.

    Fairly good shelter from sea traffic ( for a cat) anchored in 7m with swell and slight breeze from south. Take dinghy through swim area buoys ( thry are anchored to sea bed individually not on a line) leave dinghy on sandy beach south of hotel stone quay and follow goat track up to the road ( wear shoes) to access road to temple. €10 to get in and it opens at 0930. Taverna on beach .
