    We loved this anchorage, very calm. Saw lots of Flamingoes and liked the fact that there is not much activity at the moment. You can take the dinghy across the bay for "entertainment" 😊

    No buoys at the moment. Good hold on sand.

    Zur Zeit keine Bojen. Guter Halt auf Sand.

    Good behavior in 3m and sheltered from the east but no interest in staying there. Everything is closed and under reconstruction following Irma, no charm in this bay which seems to be a parking lot for a big yacht.

    Bonne tenue dans 3m et à l'abri de l'est mais aucun intérêt à y rester. Tout est fermée et en reconstruction suite à Irma, pas de charme dans cette baie qui paraît être un parking à gros yacht.
