Baie de Nichiareto

Baie de Nichiareto



N cap CAVALLO, Nichiareto bay offers a suitable anchorage by Libeccio, but none by Mistral.

It is recommended to anchor or in front of the beach by 6 to 7 m on a sandy bottom, rocks and seaweed, just in the east of the small point Bianca where protection against Libeccio is the best.

The sandy bottom and herbs are average held but the depth does not exceed 6 to 8m on a wide tidal flat in front of the beach.

The cove north of the rock is 16m depht but is open to the swell and almost all the winds. Also it is a dangerous anchorage.

All around the cove Nichiareto, the mountain is very wild.

Au Nord du Cap CAVALLO, la baie de Nichiareto offre un mouillage convenable par Libeccio, mais nul par Mistral.

Il est recommandé de jeter l'ancre soit en avant de la plage par 6 à 7m sur fond de sable, de roches et d'algues, soit juste dans l'Est de la petite pointe Bianca où la protection contre le Libeccio est la meilleure.

Les fonds de sable et d'herbes sont de moyenne tenue mais la profondeur ne dépasse pas 6 à 8m sur un large platin en avant de la plage.

L'anse au Nord du rocher de 16m est ouverte à la houle et à presque tous les vents. Aussi le mouillage est-il dangereux.

Tout autour de l'anse de Nichiareto, le massif montagneux est très sauvage.
