'Barada' is the 3rd yacht offshore at anchor, just before and to the right of the larger yellow-hulled yacht.
A Marina is currently under construction - there is a convenient dinghy-dock - also basic toilets and showers.
Paula's harbour-front bar is a popular haunt for yachts-people and locals alike, with Wi-fi available.
There is also a volcanic-sand beach for swimming and snorkelling, with interesting fishlife, tho the visibility near to shore is not so good with the work-in-progress on the Marina!
Flores is a remote but colourful island that shouldn't be missed, the most westerly of the Archipeligo.
