If for some strange reason you wanted to stop at Mona Island (US possession) off the west coast
of Puerto Rico, there is an anchorage and moorings on the western side of the island at Anclaje Sardinero. Mona Island is 35 nm from Punta Cana and 40nm from Boqueron. My friends in power yachts stop there on day passages from Punta Cana to Boqueron. There is a staked channel through the reef into the anchorage. The Mona Passage
is not known to be pleasant sailing very often especially during the daylight hours.
- - The little island off the eastern end of P.R. are mobbed by local P.R. boats during the weekends and some have resorts and tourist facilities on them. Until you get to Culebra and/or Viegues the small boat
traffic on the eastern side of P.R. is tremendous, seems everybody (sort of) on P.R. has a boat
and goes out each weekend and mobs the nearby islands. But they are all very beautiful little islands.
