    It's better to anchor fishing boats to the south. The bottom of black sand is very good. There is quickly a lot of depth, you have to anchor very close to the beach. A small swell remains, it rolls a little, but it does not matter. Landings in annex not easy, but place incredibly beautiful and preserved. Village lost at the end of the island but really great. Only two sailboats at anchor!

    C'est mieux de mouiller au sud des bateaux de pêche. Le fond de sable noir est de très bonne tenue. Il y a vite beaucoup de profondeur, il faut mouiller très près de la plage. Une petite houle subsiste, ça roule un peu, mais ce n'est pas grave. Débarquements en annexe pas faciles, mais endroit incroyablement beau et préservé. Village perdu du bout de l'ile mais vraiment formidable. Seuls deux voiliers au mouillage !

    Very nice anchorage, disembark in annex is acrobatic but the village is charming and the inhabitants are like all the Cape Verdians very nice.

    Très beau mouillage, débarquer en annexe est acrobatique mais le village est charmant et les habitants sont comme tous les cap verdiens très gentils.
