Wallilabou and/or Kingstown, St Vincent and the Grenadines

We are taking a Dream Yacht catamaran charter out of Blue Lagoon
in January 2020.

I am asking for advice on anchoring in Wallilabou for one night, or
Kingstown Harbor.

I read here about a local insisting a cat run a stern anchor to shore
in Wallilabou--which turned out to be a good thing. Also donradcliffe
02/16 post about "I'll never do that again (stop in Wallilabou)".

Personally I've always found the boat boys helpful.

If you have suggestions for shore activities (the movie set doesn't
sound so exciting), or warnings, I'd appreciate any advice.

Thanks,
Anne

Stopped in Wallibou last winter. Iíd do it again. There is a restaurant just south of it. Call ahead and you can moor there.

Thanks TheOffice.


Google maps shows Rock Side Cafe on the South, or

Wallilabou Anchorage Restaurant just east of the dock.
Probably that one. I'll hail them.



Anybody explored the caves via boat?

Reread your post. Sounds like you called Rock Side Cafe.

On Google maps, the boats in the main anchorage around to the north,
2 of them have stern anchors to shore.

There is noone anchored in the small inlet where Rock Side Cafe is. Is that where you anchored?

It was Rock Side. they have there own mooring balls and will help you tie between two of them. One guy walked us through town to customs and back. We have him 5 or 10 bucks.
local kids will sell fresh fruit and trinkets. We gave a kid $20 for $15 worth of trinkets and made his day.
They have an ad in Doyle's guide. You call ahead, tell them what you want, they buy it fresh and cook a great meal.

It's been a few years since I was there, but I enjoyed it. We did run a line from the stern to a tree on shore with a bow anchor out front.
There was a restaurant there and some movie set items from "Pirates of the Caribbean"; the free wifi and drinks made for a nice break. We also did an island tour by asking a cab driver to take us around and that was enjoyable. I'd definitely stop there again.

By "there", I mean Wallilabou.

Btw, the Jack Sparrow rum punch is about 80% alcohol. Go easy.
