Spend a nice day by boat in Getares, Algeciras, enjoy clear and warm water
This isn’t a route as such, but we wanted to show you one of the best anchoring points in the bay, which is located south of the port of Algeciras. Despite the heavy cargo traffic, this is a virgin area, close to the ruins of an unused whaling factory, which is an ideal anchoring point for times of westerly and southerly winds, with a 4-metre sandy bed and views to Africa and the Rock of Gibraltar.
A must-do is to spend a night at anchor and marvel at the sunrise with the Rock of Gibraltar as a backdrop.
It’s advisable to drop anchor when the wind is blowing from the west or the south, as you’ll be downwind from the shore.
Take care when crossing the Bay due to the cargo and ferry traffic, which especially in summer is non-stop. Also be careful when approaching the fish farm close to the beach.
