    Gravenor Bay. Mooring away from Spanish Point - access between coral potatoes (Navionics charts up to date). Good behavior in 1.5 of sand over several hundred meters. Watch out for the big TE. Davon, the local fisherman, can sell you lobsters and he tries to organize barbecues on weekends. Beautiful walks through the tracks and meeting with the wild animals of the island (donkeys, pigs, rays, dolphins ...). Magic !

    Gravenor Bay. Mouillage à l’écart de Spanish Point - l’accès se fait entre les patates de corail (cartes Navionics à jour). Bonne tenue dans 1,5 de sable sur plusieurs centaines de mètres. Attention au grand TE. Davon, le pêcheur local, peut vous vendre des langoustes et il tente d’organiser des barbecues le week-end. Belles ballades au travers des pistes et rencontre avec les animaux sauvages de l’île (ânes, cochons, raies, dauphins...). Magique !

    Beautiful anchorage, very well protected, very secluded. Enter only in good light. Luckily, Navision maps were pretty accurate.

    Very well protected anchorage with good snorkeling in the reefs around. Enter only in good light. On the entrance of the reef basin is a 2,60 m sand bank. Beyond, anchor on 3 to 4 m on sand. Good holding.
