    Thin layer of sand and lots of rocks, hard to find a good place to anchor without skidding. On the other hand, the water is transparent and you can easily check the anchor. The swell comes from the north and the wind from the east, so almost permanent rolling at this anchorage, especially when there is no more wind at night. However, it remains a practical anchorage to go to town or to the shipchandler. Free dinghy pontoons at the marina, the Yacht club or the Carenage (fishermen).

    Fine couche de sable et beaucoup de rochers, difficile de trouver un bon endroit pour jeter l'ancre sans déraper. Par contre l'eau est transparente et on peut facilement vérifier l'ancre. La houle vient du nord et le vent de l'est, donc roulis quasi permanent à ce mouillage, surtout quand il n'y a plus de vent la nuit. Ca reste toutefois un mouillage pratique pour aller en ville ou au shipchandler. Pontons dinghy gratuits à la marina, au Yacht club ou au Carenage (pêcheurs).

    Worst anchorage we’ve ever encountered. Rocks and coral everywhere, no sand to dig in the anchor, rolly as hell. We’ve been here 2 weeks here to quarantine and I don’t ever want to come back.

    Covid 19 suite compulsory passage to forget the cyclones a bit, great reception on canal 9 Geronimo speaks French, a bit of a wheeler and a bit difficult to anchor, check his anchor, pontoon with tender at the entrance to the marina. Super market in the marina. Currently mooring prohibited because reserved for covid quarantine.

    Suite covid 19 passage obligé pour oublier un peu les cyclones, super accueil canal 9 Geronimo parle français, un peu rouleur et ancrage un peu difficile, vérifier son ancre, ponton à annexe à l'entrée de la marina. Super market dans la marina. Actuellement mouillage interdit car réserve à la quarantaine covid.
