Gulf di Rodinara

24 September 2016 | Gulf di Rodinara
This is really just a large bay that is almost circular with an entrance from the east and good shelter from all but that direction. A couple of hours motoring in light winds brought us to anchor here around 11.00. It's very attractive with white sand beaches and redish-colour rocks all around the bay. It's also very popular and there was not much space but we managed to squeeze in, probably just inside a restricted area but there was no patrol to discipline us! The buoys are very confusing when you arrive as there are multiple yellow plastic things floating everywhere and it takes a while to work out what they signal. By mid afternoon someone moved and we were able to re-anchor in a good location for the night.

The next morning we went ashore by dinghy, had a coffee in the beach bar and walked the length of the beach and climbed up the low headland to take photos. We then retraced our steps and returned to Splice to get some cash to have lunch at the beach restaurant as it looked good. The Carpaccio of Tuna and two very large salads proved this to be a good choice though the local white wine caused a 'snoozy' afternoon!

We enjoyed the bay and the coming and goings around us and would have stayed a third night but the wind was to switch to the east meaning swell and discomfort were likely so we left on the Friday morning.
A lovely place, a 'must visit' if you are sailing this coast.
