Not one to overstay our welcome we move on to French Cay Harbour to re-provision and check out the new Brooksy Point Marina. We have anchored out and stayed at the Fantasy Island Marina in past years. Early this year Fantasy Island raised there rates so high that the boaters boycotted them. Mike and Lila at Brooksy Point built a VERY cruiser friendly yacht club in just weeks to meet the need. Fantasy Island have since reduced there rates, but are still having to work hard to bring boaters back.
We checked out the facilities at Brooksy Point and are happy to report that they are great. Prices are reasonable and the service second to none. Services include med tie moorage, weekly shopping trips via free bus, 10% discount at Eldon's grocery store, clean washrooms & showers, reasonable priced self service laundry, garbage drop off, fuel delivery (2 Jerry cans per week), bar and restaurant, Wi-Fi, almost daily cruiser organized events. Current membership fee is $15 US per week. We recommend this as the best facility on Roatan and possibly the Caribbean.
