    Very good protection, many people for this last or first anchorage north of Guadeloupe.

    Très bonne protection, beaucoup de monde pour ce dernier ou premier mouillage au nord de la Guadeloupe.

    Nice landscape. Anchoring wise, be careful! Extremely crowded in the season (we stayed with 82 other boats), wind is coming from all directions (seriously!) and varied between 0 and 42 knots. Variable holding, quite deep where you need lots of chain - which brings you quite close to „new“ neighbors once the wind turns by 180 degrees. All buoys taken, about a handful of them was reserved with tied-up dinghies.

    To avoid absolutely in season! Mooring archi crowded! It would have been the Balearic Islands on August 15th! In addition to strong ENE winds with bursts at 25nds. Difficult anchorage because a lot of boats and strong winds so forced to let loose a lot of chain, I could not even go down to visit the village! I really think it is better to stop further south than one is towards the south or the north a few miles from there the anchorages look more calm.

    A éviter absolument en saison ! Mouillage archi bondé ! On se serait cru aux Baléares le 15 août ! En plus des vents forts ENE avec des rafales a 25nds. Mouillage difficile car beaucoup de bateaux et vents forts donc obligé de lâcher beaucoup de chaîne , je n’ai même pas pu descendre visiter le village ! Je pense réellement qu’il vaut mieux s’arrêter plus au sud que l’on soit en direction du sud ou du nord à quelques Milles de là les mouillages on l’air plus calmes .
