The city occupies the west of the Cape the bottom of a very open cove, beaten in full by all the dangerous winds. This beach, whose surroundings offer several bars of rocks almost at the water's edge, is always difficult to dock and becomes impassable as soon as a small sea breeze rises. The large vessels anchor 900 meters, 12 to 14 meters of water, but this anchorage, fairly sheltered on the east side, is not sustainable by the north and northwesterly winds. The coasters find a safe enough shelter behind the islet massif, northeast of the city and 500 meters from the shore.
