    Very nice bay !! Last January 2021 there only 3 yachts. Outside of Corona, queuing in front of the bay, anchor or buoy. Two times out of luck. Don't leave any fruit / vegetables outside, the birds shit everything. Pubs are currently only open if you book in advance. The buoy costs 40 EC per night, no dock. It is worth walking up the street into the village, from the church you have a great view over the Tobago Cays. www.blue-water-travel-sailing.de

    Sehr schöne Bucht !! Zuletzt Januar 2021 dort nur 3 Yachten. Ausserhalb von Corona , Früh anstehen vor der Bucht, Anker oder Boje. Zwei mal kein Glück. Kein Obst/Gemüse draussen lassen, die Vögel scheissen alles voll. Kneipen öffnen zur Zeit nur auf Vorbestellung. 40 EC kostet die Boje pro Nacht , kein Dock. Die Strasse hoch in den Ort zu laufen lohnt sich, von der Kirche einen super Blick über die Tobago Cays. www.blue-water-travel-sailing.de

    Usually packed to the brim with yachts, right now it’s pretty empty - best anchoring is if you go past the mooring balls as close as you can to the beach, and drop there. Spent a few weeks here, and found the most comfortable spot is the top left corner as you’re coming in, near the sea-grass “farm”. Lovely beach, and Alex can do you a good BBQ at The Last Bar Before the Jungle. Also, beware the birds! Don’t leave any food out or they’ll get it, and be prepared to clean bird poo off your boat regularly. And shut up at night, or you may have some bats come visit.

    Aim for the middle of the bay to enter. No one at anchor. I preferred to anchor. Good holding sand (24 Knot) no swell with strong northeasterly wind but no wind protection. Hotel de la plage has gone bankrupt, the rest of the bar and shop are closed for lack of tourists. Treat with Antonio for the barbecue on the beach (half lobster 100ec).

    Bien viser le milieu de la baie pour entrer. Personne au mouillage. J’ai préféré mettre l’ancre. Sable de bonne tenue (24 Noeud) pas de houle avec fort vent de nord est mais pas de protection au vent. Hôtel de la plage a fait faillite, le reste bar et boutique sont fermés faute de touristes. Traiter avec Antonio pour le barbecue sur la plage (demi langouste 100ec).
