    Convenient place to rest. Anchor in sand. An industrial port area, but not in use much. Quiet and protected from the swell.

    Well sheltered trade winds. Quiet anchorage but beware there are big pipes under water in some places.

    Bien abrité des alizés. Mouillage calme mais attention il y a des gros tuyaux sous l'eau à certains endroits.

    I was anchored here for about 1 week. You have to be aware of the exhilaration effect of the wind here. There is usually quite an uplift in that area which makes it very popular for kite and wind surfing. The water is beautiful clean. And the commercial harbor is not very much in use. So it’s very quiet. When there is no to little wind it’s a nice place to stay. If there is wind forecasted, then you should add another 15 knots to what is predicted. So it can quickly become very uncomfortable. Not much shelter.
