Sailing Tip

The bay affords good shelter when north winds prevail. A good place for anchorage is located at the center of the bay where the depths range between 11 and 18 meters and the sea bottom is sandy. An area unsuitable for anchorage, as the sea bottom is rocky, lies west of a sandy beach in the middle of the bay.
