    Entry at high tide in very calm weather: no worries. Anchorage after the village and the buoys, on the left before the bridge. No wind, little current: we didn't move and slept very well. Village accessible in annex, very pretty and beautiful view, streets and typical houses. Easy exit at high tide to the edge of the river but all of a sudden, between the 2 rocks, 6 breaking waves 3 meters high gave us a huge fright! Yet it was quiet 30 seconds before ...

    Entrée à marée haute par temps très calme: pas de soucis. Mouillage après le village et les bouées, à gauche avant le pont. Pas de vent, peu de courant : nous n'avons pas bougé et très bien dormi. Village accessible en annexe, très joli et belle vue, rues et maisons typiques. Sortie facile à marée haute jusqu'à la limite de la rivière mais tout d'un coup, entre les 2 rochers, 6 vagues déferlantes de 3 mètres de haut nous on fait une énorme frayeur ! C'était pourtant calme 30 secondes avant...

    Only by day with the sun in the back and calm sea and tide before still water. Very quiet and safe anchorage near the moorings in the middle of the Mira. Moderate current. Good supply options nearby.
