Such a dilemma – do you share details of a lovely anchorage with your fellow sailors or try to keep it all to yourself ? We find ourselves in Indian Creek, Antigua and are very taken with this little spot. It was a little difficult to spot on the approach and care needed to be taken to round the rock near the entrance, but once inside the bay we could see the creek curving away into the mangroves, providing a tranquil anchorage. “It will be lovely if we have enough water to get in there” I shout from the bow. Luckily we did.
The pilot book describes Indian Creek as a small hurricane hole, but for us it was a place to unwind for a couple of days before returning to the 'real world' of Caribbean cruising. In fact we ended up staying for 3 nights; snorkeling in the clearer water towards the sea entrance, waving to some local fishermen, listening to baby goats bleating for their mothers and practicing our star gazing. We did some work on the boat too of course !
We did find the wind funneled into the bay providing some occasional gusts and it might not be comfortable in all conditions, but we will definitely keep Indian Creek on our list of lovely anchorages.
