The harbor/marina is a secure place to take a break from sailing. You can find cleaning, mending, waste disposal, and tank filling services at the harbor. If you decide on a bareboat charter, it might be wiser to berth in a marina, especially if you are not well acquainted with the sailing region you chose to explore.
Berthing in marinas is also safer because they are protected from winds and harsh weather conditions.
Anchorage is a maneuver where you drop anchor if you need to hide from bad weather conditions or enjoy the scenery. If you optioned a skippered charter, the captain would know several secluded bays where you can anchor. For anchoring in bays, you should ensure that your food, water, and electricity supplies are sufficient.
