The marine and underwater conditions for anchoring boats are excellent in this bay which is open to the wind from the southeast-south-southwest. You can anchor anywhere in this sea inlet, on a sandy ground with seaweed at a depth that ranges from four to ten metres. In the north-western area there is an old jetty, with a depth of 2,5 metres at the beginning and five at the end.
