    Convenient bay. Budget Marine dock is good to access chandler and short walk from Maurice Bishop highway where you find local bus into town. Take rubbish to Spice Island Marine boatyard, no charge. Water is not so nice, but better if anchor further out and closer to the University Club. Prickly Bay dock is in need of repair but easy walk to The West Indies Brewery where you find good crafy beers. Prickly Bay is reported to be opening their restaurant soon. They have a good mini mart and a French butcher onsite.

    I confirm what Patrick said. I would add the proximity of foot races, the bus to Grand Anse and St Gorges.

    Je confirme ce qu’à dit Patrick. Je rajouterais la proximité de courses à pieds, le bus pour Grand Anse et St Gorges.

    Safe anchorage, bottom of sand and mud, near the marina with pontoon with tenders, custom, grocery store, laundromat and above all a French butcher with excellent meat, wine, cold meats and bread all French! Attention for the bins it is paying 1 €! For maintenance, very well stocked marine budget and especially electronics, solar panels with Jean Michel at the top for electronics, it is at the bottom of the bay.

    Mouillage sécurisant, fond de sable et de vase, près de la marina avec ponton à annexes, custom, épicerie, laverie et un surtout un boucher français avec une excellente viande, vin, charcuterie et pain le tout français! Attention pour les poubelles c'est payant 1€ ! Pour l'entretien budget marine très bien achalandé et surtout électronique, panneaux solaire avec jean Michel au top pour l'électronique, c'est au fond de la baie.
