Our to 5 Guadaloupe Anchorages are:

Anse Du Borgue

The Saintes is a beautiful place. It is mainly mooring balls. You can anchor on the east side but you will be away from the town. Mooring balls are only $15 a day with your 4th night free. This is a sleepy little French vacation island that is very laid back. It has a kind of Paris feel to it except with beaches.


Internet is VERY hard to come by. If you do find it it's very slow. This is also a port of enrty. It cost me under $20 us to clear in. It's a great place to spend a week. Any longer then that and you will start to get cabin feaver.


Their are three or four grocery stores. It is a great place to provision. There is also a great hardware store that has all kinds of great parts for boaters.


Deshaies

This can be a tricky anchorage. It is in a deep valley and the wind swirls. This can cause boats to move in all kinds of diffrent directions. Make sure to give youe neighbor plenty of room.


It is also the northern most port of entry. it's just as quick, easy and cheep as eberywhere else in the French Caribbean. It has a nice town with plenty of services. Again the anchorage is a little dicey.


Pointe-a-Pitre

Located on the south side of the main island of Guadaloupe this anchorage is in the middle of the island. Between the butterfly wings. It is the countries main port. Their is a marina and services galore. It is a good spot to go after you have cleared in. Not sure how or why you would make this your first of last stop on your trip.


Their are plenty of bars and places to eat here. The marina is massive but hard to find information on. Come here for a few days to check it out then move on.


Grand Bourg

On the easten most island of Marie Galante this is the offical port of entry. Their is also a marina there. Anchoring outside the marina is tough. Their are shallow shoals around and their is no protection from the east at all. The wind and swell will be in full effect.


There isn't much here. Most of the island seems to be stuck in time. It is pretty run down. The beaches are beautiful and deserted. If you looking for things to do and a better clientel head over to The Saintes.


Bouillante

This anchorage on the Southeast coast of the island has good holding. The anchorage is a small indentation. You won't have much protection from a north swell. Any southern swell you will be protected from. Tuck into the south corner and you will be good to go.
