 Mero - Profile

Location

A bay on the west coast of the island, about 15nm north of Roseau.

Position 15° 25'06"N, 61° 25'47"W.

Clearance

There are no clearance facilities here.

Docking

Permission to visit here must be obtained when clearing in.

This bay offers a sheltered anchorage off the resort of Castaways, which welcomes yachts and allows the use of the hotel facilities.

Note that bay is subject to building swells when weather unsettled.

There is good holding in the sand shelf to the SW of the dinghy dock. Beware of the artificial reef in front of the hotel.

North of Mero, there are two mooring buoys at Batalie Beach, in front of the Sunset Bay Club Hotel and Restaurant. There is sometimes a spare mooring here. Call on VHF 16.

Some basic provisions are available at Mero.
