Although the marina is located 3km out of the hectic city centre of Basse-Terre it offers all you need on a daily basis. The queue at the local butcher seems to never stop and even on a Sunday its open but you need to be prepared to line up. The bakery is next to it, a good fruit and vegetable shop, self service laundry, chandlery, general grocery shop, etc. Nothing missing, which pushes you to get into town. Even the beach is at arm’s length.
Nevertheless, a panoramic cycle track brings you into town for any extraordinary needs or to enjoy the huge market hall.
I like this marina and its privacy offering all you need in a well-balanced setting.
