Bingo.... There is another (much smaller) similar formation off the 'corner' of Saba, also called 'Diamond Rock' IIRC..

Ste Anne it is. We flew into Martinique, hopped on the boat at Le Marin and snuck around the corner for a cleaner, quieter overnight before heading south. All the (mainly French, I'm guessing) tourists got right into hauling those nets. There were a couple of unhappy puffer fish in the catch.
