    Special place. Anchor south of the laguna, with east wind, at 12 mtr, 40 meters of chain, so end up at 6 mtr. Ok good holding. Entrance was near konkylie "island", follow the green path west, then north. Peace of cake, and lots of water.

    Nothing but sand and a parasol with a wooden bench. Southwest pass attached.

    Rien que du sable et un parasol avec banc en bois. Passe Sud-Ouest en annexe.

    We anchored in front of Morpion Island at 11m depth. Just for lunch and a little snorkeling in the afternoon. We took the annex to go to the island with a single parasol ... a total postcard !!! Be careful when passing with the annex, zigzagging is compulsory to avoid the corals that are outcropping ... We have finished rowing. Snorkeling question: we weren't disappointed ... the water is crystal clear, the corals are full of all the Caribbean classics ... We even saw a shark! An unmissable daytime anchorage!

    On a mouillé face à l’île de Morpion par 11m de fond . Juste pour le repas de midi et un petit snorkeling dans l’après midi. On a pris l’annexe pour aller sur l’île avec un unique parasol... totale carte postale !!! Attention en passant avec l’annexe, zigzag obligatoire pour éviter les coraux qui affleurent... On a fini à la rame . Question snorkeling : on n’a pas été déçu... l’eau est cristalline, les coraux regorgent de tous les classiques des Caraïbes... On a même vu un requin ! Un mouillage de journée à ne pas manquer!
