    Protected anchorage. Very nice beach. Northerly swells make it rolly.. difficult to land the dinghy. All the land from Cocoa Point to beyond the old airstrip is private land, with construction plans for private luxury houses. Security will come and chase you off as soon as you leave the beach toward inland.

    A bit more crowded than the anchorage at Low Bay, but very reasonable compared to Antigua. Do not get wet in front of the hotel in the extreme south, a seaplane comes to drop the VIP customers of the hotel. No need to go for a drink at the bar, private hotel for guests only. Too much in the North, beware of coral potatoes, but it leaves you a good space anyway. The sand is an immaculate white rare! It looks like flour.

    Un peu plus fréquenté que le mouillage de Low Bay, mais très raisonnable par rapport à Antigua. Ne mouillez pas face à l’hôtel à l’extrême Sud, un hydravion vient y déposer les clients VIP de l’hôtel. Inutile d’aller prendre un verre au bar, hotel privé pour les clients uniquement. Trop au Nord, attention aux patates de corail, mais cela vous laisse un bon espace quand même. Le sable est d’un blanc immaculé rare! On dirait de la farine.

    Approach slowly, and wet as close to the beach .. Beach of fine sand. Watch out for the mosquitoes at nightfall !!! Enjoy the corals to the east ... Open the eyes the turtles like to walk around in the corner

    Approchez lentement, et mouillez au plus près de la plage .. Plage de sable fin. Attention aux moustiques à la nuit tombée !!! Profitez des coraux à l'Est... Ouvrez l'œil les tortues aiment beaucoup se promener dans le coin
