Cheechako, When were you in St Martin?
When I was thru there last spring, the bridge toll and fees
to stay in Simpson Bay and Lagoon
had been raised so high that there were empty slips in all if the marinas
and everybody was anchoring
on the French side. Resturants were closing at an alarming rate, Shrimpy's had lost
. The fee structure for Margot Bay on the French side had been raised to the point that nobody stayed longer than a day.
In St Barth's I paid $35US a day to anchor
outside, and they do patrol. Last year in St Barth's, I had a lunch of a salad, two beers, and two scoops of ice cream and paid $52US.
Mega-yachts were boycotting Antigua over thier new fee structure.
I would recommend the Grenadines.
