When you approach by sea from the north, beware of the rocks at Santa Anna point and leave a leeway of 400 metres. If you are approaching from the south, keep some distance from the coast in the stretch between the mouth of the Tordera river and the harbour, as sandbanks tend to form. Southern and south-eastern gales may cause undercurrents inside the harbour. The Sant Joan castle, set atop a hill of 160 metres serves as a landmark for your approach.
