Cala Mucchi Bianchi Anchorage
Not to be used for navigation
There is one
shallow spot in the bay shown on the chart at a reported 10'. Stay in
the center away from the
shoreline. We anchored
in 20'. The southern part of this same bay is known as Cala Bitta and
is much more developed and less attractive.
This is a lovely
bay, surrounded by eroded granite boulders. It is not ruined by
the small development at the end of the bay or the few beachfront houses. There
are several pocket beaches. Despite hearing from SSCA members about boats
dragging out of this anchorage we had a good set and felt perfectly
secure. There are several other anchorages in this bay in
event of any problems. When we arrived the water was salt and
beautifully clear. When we left the next morning the water was fresh, brown and
muddy presumably from rain further south inland.
beaches are sand and the very small beach next to the small
rock jetty is
protected from any waves. Choose your beach and pull your dinghy up as far as you can
and set an anchor on the beach.
There are walking
trails that lead around the headland as well as the boulders to climb.
None other than the presumably
private small resort.
