It unanimous for Doyle's. I also agree with all of the above recommendations, but would add the following comments: while Anse Marcel is a reaonable anchorage (and there is a marina) with a pretty beach fronting Le Meridien hotel
, there is virtually no decent shopping
nearby; Grand Case is ok for short term anchoring
(and for an opportunity to enjoy one of their incredible restaurants); Orient Beach is not really a spot to anchor
, although it is
probably the longest and busiest beach on the island.
And if you have the time, nautical is absolutely right about nearby Anguilla
and, of course, for a taste of the rich and famous, St Barth's.
