The Prickly Bay anchorage


After four days in Prickly Bay where we took advantage of the good bus and taxi services to re-provision from the supermarkets and wine shops at Grand Anse we moved to Woburn Bay, three inlets to the north east.  Prickly Bay has a reputation of being prone to swell and over the days that we were there the nights became very rolly.  We also wished to be able to get alongside to receive our friends George and Janet Florence who arrive on the 8th and Clarkes Court Bay Marina looked like an ideal spot for this.


A note on the buses in Grenada, they are mini-buses and ply competitively.  As a potential passenger it is a real spectator sport as the crews vie for you custom.   They also drive at a furious rate in order to get to the next passengers before their rivals. Lastly they are inexpensive and the standard fare appears to be EC$2.50, about 63p.
