Anchorages

Sadly, Andraitx has little left for safe anchorage. Previously anchoring was possible in the entrance outside of the channel and inner harbour. The Club de Vela has been granted authority to lay mooring balls in this area on both the east & west sides of the channel & anchoring is now prohibited here. Charges apply for these buoys. Some services to the buoys are provided, including mooring assistance, trash removal & a water taxi service. The inner basin is home to a large fleet of fishing boats which come & go twice daily. Due to these fishing boats, anchoring in the inner basin is permitted only in the case of emergency.
