Port of Entry

It is located on the south central part of Roatán. The entrance is French Cay Harbour. The owner, Mike, will gladly come out and guide you into the harbor, whether you stay at their marina or not. This is a small full-service marina and yacht club that caters exclusively to cruisers. It is run by a couple, Mike and Lilo who are cruisers themselves. They do a great job of providing activities and services that cruisers need in a great friendly family atmosphere. The club provides transportation to local supermarket weekly, fuel and propane fills, self-service laundry, water and electric for boats at the marina and many other services. They also have many fun activities like movie night, potlucks, cruisers cook offs, birthday and holiday celebrations, special packages for divers, tank fills, transportation to different dive sites, and much more. There is also a beautiful anchorage very near by. All cruisers are welcome whether at the marina or in the anchorage. The club has a small and delicious menu, breakfast lunch and dinner.

Provisioning

  • Eldon's Supermarket is as close to a US market as I have seen in this part of the world. It is not cheap but they seem to have just about everything. There is one in French Harbour and one in Coxen Hole. If you are docked at Brooksy Point or in the nearby anchorage, Brooksy has a weekly trip to Eldon's which includes delivery to the dock. Very convenient.
