We anchored near the town of Basse-Terre, close to the Marina Riviere Sens. The area around the marina is quite pleasant, with low-rise buildings, several restaurants, shops and services.
We walked to the nearby town of Basse-Terre. It's about a mile from our anchorage, along the well done shoreline walkway.
The town's marketplace there is quite interesting, as well as its downtown.
We were also staying there waiting for the broken Lewmar winch part to arrive. Meanwhile, did some fishing, boat hull bottom cleaning, etc.
Unfortunately, as it turns out, the whole west coast of Guadeloupe is quite rolly, and there are no good anchorages to hide. Also, the only place to get water into the boat's tanks is at the Marina Riviere Sens - and with small med-moor only docks that was not easy.
