We anchored in about 8-10m on a rocky bottom. At the N end of the bay and close in, the bottom is supposedly sandy, and this would be a better option if you can squeeze in; it was busy with day-trippers when we arrived but there were only three of us overnight. In hindsight, it would have been a good idea to reposition and thereby avoiding the sounds of the chain sweeping the rocky bottom as we gently swung in the docile winds. We enjoyed a wonderfully peaceful anchorage, but, obviously, this exposed place would be untenable in heavy weather, especially if there's any hint of W or NW in it. Ashore, there is said to be a snack bar at the top of the hill, and there's also a couple of vacation rental properties that must enjoy spectacular sunsets.

Mooring in the center of a collapsed crater, on sandy bottom, depth of about 6 meters. Very good behavior. Large enough area, probably the best mooring in Salinas. The Navionics map indicates that the anchorage is in a forbidden zone, but we have not been dislodged. Not seen underwater cables.

Mouillage au centre d’un cratère effondré, sur fond de sable, profondeur d’environ 6 mètres. Très bonne tenue. Zone assez vaste, probablement le meilleur mouillage de Salinas. La carte Navionics signale que le mouillage se trouve en zone interdite, mais nous n’avons pas été délogé. Pas vu de câbles sous-marins.

Best anchorage in the center in about 7 meters of water, rocky bottom. The most beautiful sunset of the Aeolian Islands can be admired from the belvedere right above Cala Pollara and Poggio del Semaforo.

Miglior ancoraggio al centro in circa 7 mt di acqua , fondale roccioso. Il tramonto più bello delle isole Eolie si ammira dal belvedere proprio sopra Cala Pollara al Poggio del Semaforo.

Very nice place to swim and watch the incredible sunset. The bottom is mostly loose rocks big and small so the anchor doesn't really hold, so use this bay only in calm weather, drop a lot of chain.
