The marina at Porto Petro is small with room for yachts only up
to 12m in length. However, it backs onto bars, restaurants and shops
with telephones nearby. This quiet town is an attractive backdrop
for the marina. A deposit of 2,000 pesetas is required when using
electricity or water in this port. For larger craft it is possible
to anchor in the bay. Due to a flash flood seven years ago there
were a great many large tree branches strewn around the seabed,
so that use of a trip-line on the anchor was recommended, but by
now this is not usually a problem as only the occasional branch
remains. Club Med, who have a holiday complex behind the beach here,
are attempting to make the beach a private one and to ban visiting
yachtpeople from landing. However, to have private beaches is impossible
in Spain and any attempts to persuade you otherwise should be met
with a polite refusal to leave.
