Pointe d'Acciolu

Characteristics

Description

The shore at the foot of Mount Orlando 107m high, has an appearance very rocky and steep cut.

However, when it is perfectly calm sea, moor between two heads of rocks on the eastern flank of Acciolu (174 m) where the falling stone submarines are very beautiful.
Note however by drop an anchor does not jammed between two rocks with 10 to 15m background. The site is very wild and desert.

Le rivage, au pied du mont Orlando haut de 107m, présente un aspect rocheux extrêmement découpé et abrupt. 

On peut toutefois par mer parfaitement calme, s'amarrer entre deux têtes de roches sur le flanc Est d'Acciolu (174 m) où les tombants de pierre sous-marins sont fort beaux.
Attention toutefois en mouillant une ancre à ne pas la coincer entre deux roches par 10 à 15m de fond. Le site est très sauvage et désert.
