Hatchett Cay

26-27th July 2022

Just stopping over on the way to Glover’s Reef so we could arrive in the morning before the light makes navigation difficult. Spent some time ashore at the beach – the small coves to the north of the dock have nicer water than the larger beach next to the restaurant.

Snorkeling was a little difficult compared to most other islands around, and maybe Charlotte and Theo missed the best spots- it was a bit of a swim from the shoreline, and quite deep for anchoring the dinghy in places where the chain wouldn’t damage the coral. If we visit again, we will leave more time to explore as what we did see looked interesting.

30th June to 1st July

Just an overnight stop on a mooring buoy to break up the trip from Glover’s Reef to Placencia. Arthur caught many fish. The resort is very quiet, as most places around here seem to be.

For sailors: take any of the moorings that are available, pay your $15US at the dive shop on the island. If you want to eat at the restaurant, they prefer you make a reservation (or at least they did when we were there). We visitors can use the Western side of the island – by the snorkeling area, the mini-beach, etc., but the rest of the island is resort-guests only (including the slide, bit of a disappointment).

As the kids couldn’t use the slide and the beach seemed pretty small, we left the next morning to make our way slowly back over to Placencia.
