Our boat was robbed within a few hours of arriving at the Bas-du-fort Marina a few years ago. I had been warned to lock everything securely, and I did, but the thieves smashed our companionway doors while we were ashore. They probably watched us arrive and saw that we had gone ashore after docking. Crime in this area is one reason that Sunsail closed their base in Guadeloupe in 2011. Hopefully this situation has improved since then.

We had no problems at other anchorages.
thank you So Much! It was a 4 month trip of a lifetime

If I had the sea legs, I'd sail from St. Martin to Guadeloupe to Martinique and bypass the rest with their voluminous paperwork, cranky officials and crappy overpriced food.
yes őles des Saintes was just pure heaven. beautiful hiking, amazing crepes, great essential oil selections at the pharmacy, great restaurants & boutiques. Everything a girl could want after being off at sea for a long time

Sorry about the photo rotation. 10 liters of wine, 20 Euro.

Snorkeling with the turtles in the anchorage near the Cousteau park.
beautiful photo of the Turtle
