    We went through this anchorage to visit the Zoo, which is also very pretty, 300m from the beach. The outfit is identical to St Pierre, 5/6 long distance on sand, 50m of chain. On the other hand, the spot is a thousand times quieter and more wild, with a small bar that makes fish and kebabs. Very cool, we will come back to it rather than to St Pierre.

    Nous sommes passé par ce mouillage pour aller visiter le Zoo, très joli par ailleurs, à 300m de la plage. La tenue est identique à St Pierre, 5/6 de fond sur du sable, 50m de chaîne. Par contre le spot est mille fois plus tranquille et sauvage, avec un petit bar qui fait du poisson et des brochettes. Très cool, nous y reviendrons plutôt qu’à St Pierre.

    We had a very rolly night but our catamaran behaved quite well and 40 mt chain plus a good anchor alarm helped to have some sleep. It’s 1,5km to St.Pierre dock. Very calm anchorage. We dinghied to town for clearance, a biere and some shopping. Very disappointed by the town, it was almos deserted with just a supermarket and the clearance Alsace a Key Restaurant open. We spent a night there to sail north to Guadeloupe early the next morning. Beware of the fishing buoys approaching, they are everywhere. The view of the Volcano is amazing.

    Mooring on a bottom of 10m of sand, to avoid that of St Pierre very frequented. A little out of the way but excellent behavior and calm.

    Mouillage sur fond de 10m de sable, pour éviter celui de St Pierre très fréquenté. Un peu excentré mais excellente tenue et calme.
