2010 Spain

After spending a couple of weeks in a marina in Cueta North Africa we headed to the coast of mainland Spain with some trepedation, as the Spanish coast is not very ideal for anchoring and the few anchorages are few and far between.  We first anchored at the shore in Estopania and had to leave early morning as it started rolling, then we stopped and anchored at Cala San Pedro, we spent a couple of days there and headed to Mazarron from there to Torreviejo and after a few days there to Calpe, the best and calmest anchorage was Torreviejo, right in the harbour.
