I like St Johns. Very pretty town, especially after the cruise
out at night. Its a 'real' town after hours. Lovely locals markets and even the supermarkets are 'locals' supermarkets.
The anchorage is as stinky as hell. Really bad. holding is good and totally protected. Its sandwitched between the cruise ship
wharfe and just out from the fish
market so the fishing
boats chug past.
See the triangle on the chart and L&L
tie up is the wooden boardwalk which is a hell of a climb, and I went in one day, so if you have old, unfit people with you drop them off at the rock wall, its too shallow to tie up there.
The rest of Antigua is as everyone says, English
Harbour tied to Nelsons Dock
is a history
lesson you'll remember for life.
