    Tuck yourself well to north to avoid the roll. There's a good Carrefour about 1nm further south, the Leader Price is somewhat smaller - however I would not stay the night so far south, very rolly. A good spot to dinghy over and see the Jacques Cousteau national park - go early in the morning before the first day tourists arrive and you'll have it all for yourself! Good holding. Somewhat gusty. A lot of people snorkeling along the peninsula so keep a good eye.

    Strong night wind on a solid sandy bottom, which finally spreads the swell ... The plus of the anchorage: rental of a car from "Pipo et Mandwe" which offers to deliver the vehicle near the anchorage. Visit of this superb Basse Terre with hiking in the forest from various places (see the site randoguadeloupe.gp) swimming in fresh water and very few tourists ...

    Fort vent de nuit sur un fond de sable solide, qui finalement étale la houle... Le plus du mouillage : location d’une voiture chez « Pipo et Mandwe » qui propose de livrer le véhicule à proximité du mouillage . Visite de cette superbe Basse Terre avec randonnées en forêt depuis diverses lieux ( voir le site randoguadeloupe.gp) baignades en eau douce et très peu de touristes...

    Wet in ESE very close to the Pointe de Malendure. 6 m deep. In the park area but far from the road. Grass and sand beds. Avoid the herbaria! Wild and quiet anchorage. Be careful, the boat is 270 degrees around its anchor. Lots of fish and a few turtles.

    Mouillé dans l’ESE tout proche de la pointe de Malendure. 6 m de fond. Dans la zone du parc mais loin de la route. Fonds d’herbes et de sable. Eviter les herbiers ! Mouillage sauvage et tranquille. Attention, le bateau fait 270 degrés autour de son ancre. Plein de poissons et quelques tortues.
