    Great anchorage to visit the nearby shopping mall Destreland a 20min walk away. Great bus connections west and east every 15min. The city itself had not much to offer than the usual small grocery shops and a few restaurants (in Covid times), although the church and marina walk is quite pretty. Drug abuse is visible in some of the streets, but we had no bad experiences or felt unsafe at any time, but didn't venture too far in the dark, as recommended by locals. The murky water in the anchorage does not invite for a swim, but the holding is very good (hard mud). A dinghy tour away is the Grande Riviere river worth a day of dinghy exploration with some beautiful forest and country side scenery with the mountains as backdrop. We ended up spending almost two weeks here as we really enjoyed the flat water and stock up, make daily trips and with good shopping in the area. The few people we met were really friendly and nice. You'll probably not find a more quiet anchorage in Guadeloupe, it's literally oil blank in evenings and without the mosquitoes. Good 4G signal. x Camping gas available at Mr. Bricolage

    A very pleasant stopover in the countryside, certainly not turquoise water but clean and silent! Anchoring at 3/4 meters safe bottom.

    Une escale bien agréable dans la verdure, certes pas d'eau turquoise mais propre et silencieux ! Mouillage à 3/4 mètres fond sûr.

    Super calm anchorage, no roll, shops nearby. Interesting if visiting ilets around.

    Mouillage super calme, aucun roulis, commerces à proximité. Intéressant si visite des ilets autour.
