A taste of Caribbean or South Pacific islands, a very pleasant part of cruising this coast. Also bit cooler than the anchorages in the rivers and no mosquitoes at anchor... most nights!
Anchor: in 2.5-9m soft mud, good shelter from the swell ( further inshore you can get) and good holding. The buoys are for the trip boats but can be used overnight (boats leave at 16:30 and arrived back around 09:30). Watch out for the depths around the buoys during spring tides but should be fine at neaps (3.7m on the yellow buoy in the middle of the bay).
Ashore: a floating pontoon that can be sued to land your dinghy. There is a footpath around the island; take one of paths up the hill and enjoy lovely views of Île du Diable from the bar/restaurant. Lots of monkeys, agoutis, iguanas, macaws and wild chickens
