    "Great, another resort bay", was my initial thought, but I quite liked the place. Clear water, which is a rarity in Antigua, and easy anchoring in sand. The wind had northerly in it, gusting in the twenties, but there were no chop to speak of and you can tuck in behind the northern corner. The beach seem popular for locals to visit by car as well. We had a great walk to the top of the nearby hill with good views over the anchorage and Jolly harbor.
