Country: Cabo Verde

Description

Pretty anchorage although select a spot to anchor with care; too far south and the swell causes severe rolling; too far north and the bottom is rocky with poor holding. The holding is good in the black sand in 5 to 10m. Keep clear of the fairway as ferries and small cargo boats use the quay.

Dinghies can be left at the slipway at the root of the mole or on the beach. There will be no shortage of children as 'minders' to watch it.
Warning: beware of a rock located at the N of the anchorage, about 500m from the beach; less than 1 m of water!
Ashore: water from the the village well, stalls offering basic products and some bars. 
Don't miss: take a local bus (2019, 250esc/ person) to Ribeira Brava and appreciate the stunning scenary along the way.
