We have been informed that this news is inaccurate. Apparently there is NO ban on anchoring apart from in the marine nature reserve at Tango Bay. There is, however, an ongoing study by an environmental group from Valencia, which is not due to report until later this year.
All boat owners should be aware that they can be heavily fined for anchoring anywhere in the Jávea bay area, as the sea bed is considered a nature preservation area, and anchors and chains can damage the ‘sea grass’.
All boats must use the mooring buoys. In Sardine Bay there are a maximum of 36, and in Cala Blanca there are another 24 – a total of approximately 60 maximum. See the photo (courtesy of Graham Hustler) above.
Be warned if planning to moor in this area, an early start is recommended to secure a mooring. The area will be policed by the Marine Guardia Civil, either in a rib, or on a jet ski.
