    If there is no buoy available, run away from this bay because the bottoms behind the buoy area (in the South West) are not healthy. The bottoms are of bad hold and go up quickly with aggressive rocks near the edge. Arrived at the end of the day with the trade winds well established and not knowing this detail I dropped and damaged a saffron. In this case, it is better to anchor at Saline Bay.

    S’il n’y a pas de bouée disponible, fuyez cette baie car les fonds derrière la zone des bouées (au Sud-Ouest) n’est pas saine. Les fonds sont de mauvaise tenue et remontent vite avec des roches agressives près du bord. Arrivé à la tombé du jour avec les alizés bien établis et ne connaissant pas ce détail j’ai décroché et abîmé un safran. Dans ce cas, il vaut mieux mouiller à Saline Bay.

    Mooring on buoys or anchor. $ 60 EC per night. Very beautiful beach.

    Mouillage sur bouées ou ancre. 60$EC la nuit. Très belle plage.

    We were the only boat due to covid, so we had no issues with overcrowd. Terry and Joseph were very nice and provided a beach bbq. Hotel is closed permanently, so it should be even quieter than usual from now on.
