Our to 5 St. Barths Anchorages are:

Be careful where you anchor in St. Barths. Most of the North East bays are protected marine parks and their is no anchoring allowed.

Anse Du Colombier

This is a much better anchorage then Gustavia. It is number one on the list because it has the best protection from the prevailing weather. It is also a nature reserve.


The two problems with it are 1- the holding is dicey. Its a mix of sand and grass so dive your anchor to make sure your dug in. @ it's far from everything. There is noting up in this corner of the island and it's to far to dinghy to Gustavia.


Baie St. Jean

The anchorages on the north side have the best beaches. They are what you think of when you think Caribbean beach. Calm turquoise water, white sand and palmtress everywhere.


In order to anchor here you must be 1000 ft offshore. This is just to keep everyone on the beach safe. Their are always alot of swimmers in the water. Be careful if you dinghy in. Just keep an eye out and proceed slow.


Anse de Grande Saline

This is a beautiful south side day anchorage. If you have ever been to the Hamptons you will notice the similarities. The beach is wide and tan in color. It's vegitation is very similar. Whispy grass and low overgrowth. It is in a big valley with step mountainous sides. Nude sunbathing isn't frowned upon either.


Anse de Lorient

This is another beautiful north side beach anchorage that has good protection from mountains to the east. Be carefull heading in here its narrow and shallow but the holding is good.


Gustavia

This anchorage is a nessesary evil. Most of the time the prevailing weather makes this a rough and rolly anchorage. The water here is deep. You need at least 150 of chain and rode to be ok anchoring here. When you do get your anchor down the bottom is sandy. The holding is good. It is usually quite full and remember you can't anchor anywhere in front of the boats on private mooring balls.
