For boaters the only safe mooring is that of Giglio Porto. However, the only port on the island of Giglio has only a very limited number of berths on the quay.
For larger boats (the length must not exceed 25 meters) it has about 13 places at the red pier (grand ducal pier) for the night only. During the day, the seats must be vacated as they are used by the cruise ships.
Services for the boats that anchor in the harbour of Giglio is a petrol station. Only for small boats with little draft can they supply water and electricity to the floating piers in zone B2.
Giglio Porto, the only port on the island, can accommodate up to 196 boats.

Opening Hours: from Monday to Friday 9 am to 12 pm; Tuesday and Thursday 3 pm to 4.30 pm.
In case of north wind, tramontana, Cala delle Cannelle (south of the port on the east coast) and Cala dell’Allume (on the west coast) are recommended for anchoring.
The large bay of Campese and cala dell’Arenella are instead protected from the south wind, sirocco, and therefore ideal when the wind blows from the south.
Anchorage = maneuver that secures the vessel to the seabed by means of an anchor in a bay or roadstead
