St Pierre

Overnight stop, Charlotte and the boys visited the beautiful zoo while Dave did some work and repaired the autopilot, then we carried on.

Near d’Arlet

Spectacular little anchorage off a small pebble beach. Stayed for a night to break up the journey into Hector-sized chunks. Swam a lot. Played a bit. That’s about it.

St. Pierre

Long, narrow anchorage off a town that was decimated by a volcano in 1902. Great history all over. Wonderful Earth Sciences museum. Lots of starfish.


Anchored just off the beach at a nice little town. Bars/restaurants/supermarket nearby. Lovely little bay a short dinghy ride away, too.

St. Anne

Busy but massive anchorage. Good facilities ashore, as well as a few beaches. Spent some time with fellow boat-families.

Le Marin

We didn’t stay long here, but the Leader Price supermarket (with dinghy dock) was very useful. Enjoyed kayaking among the mangroves, too.
