Our to 5 Martinique Anchorages are:

Le Marin

Here there are two harbors. The outer harbor, where you anchor to clear in and the inner harbor.


The outer harbor has great holding and amazing sunsets. Their is a beautiful beach at the front of the anchorage. You can't go to close though. Their are bouys marking the inner edge of where you can anchor. This is to keep boats a little off shore so people can swim safely. remember to mind the dinghy channels. They are not clearly marked but enter on the left side of the beach.


The inner harbour has better holding but it's more crowded and small. You will be closer to services here. The marine supply shopping is the best and cheepest in the Caribbean. If you need an engine replaced this is the place to do it.


Le Diamant

This place is perfect. Anything but a south swell and you will never want to leave. Their is a sandy bottom so the holding is great. Their is a shoal offshore that breaks and could be hard to get your dinghy across. Be mindful that it is here. There is a beach bar and a amazing palmtree lined beach that looks fake.


Anse d' Arlets

This is the perfect sleepy beach town. It's a torist haven and their are alot of people on the beach, but its not overwhelming. The holding here is hit or miss. There are numerous sand wholes. If you are lucky enough to find one without an anchor in it grab it and stay awhile. Other then that the holding is poor to mixed. The bottom is mainly sea grass. I was dragging all over the place in light wind.


Petit Anse

This is the perfect sleepy beach town. Very similar in every why to Anse d' Arlets. It's a torist haven and their are alot of people on the beach. The holding here is hit or miss. There are numerous sand wholes. If you are lucky enough to find one without an anchor in it grab it and stay awhile.


Other then that the holding is poor to mixed. The bottom is mainly sea grass. I was dragging all over the place in light wind. Their are a few submerged unmarked blocks that you can tie you anchor off to on the north end.


Saint Pierre

Only go here in calm weather. It is a deep and very narrow anchorage. A big chunk is a exclusion zone. Space is at a premium and the water is deep. The holding is decent but due to the surge its hard to get you anchor dug in. You will constantly be swirling around with the wind and tide so be careful not to get your rode fowled up.


This is a port of entry. Their is a nice dinghy dock but it is high. You will need a long painter. Their is a grocey store nearby and a open air market for local goods. Their is a black sand beach in the shadow of Mount Pele. It really is a beautiful spot. If the weather turns you will need to leave in a hurry.
