While yachts can tie up to the pier it is not recommended. A few years ago a large storm came through and the boats tied up to the pier were not able to get off quickly and were badly damaged. Anchors over anchors, big problems.
Rather than use the pier there are numerous buoys or lay anchor. It is illegal to anchor south of an immaginary line that runs from the head of the pier to the west coast of Basiluzzo (a large island offshore of Panarea). Anchor well north of the pier to avoid problems. Il Miglio Blue [ Il Miglio Blue ] 22-Feb-2010
We anchored in the harbour under the cliff.
Someone appeared to be living or camping at the top of the overhanging cliff in a hammock.Howard [ Just Imagine ] 23-Feb-2008
