Magazine Beach

A beach where snorkeling is an option is Pink Gin Beach.

Beach goers can also find kayak rentals, a shopping center less than five miles away, and a fascinating volcanic crater lake.

Another good option for snorkelers is Grand Beach. Grand Beach is a thin stretch of white sand beach rimmed with trees. The lip of land that separates the beach from the bay is on the rocky side, but visitors shouldn't have trouble walking through the sand elsewhere.

Morne Rouge Beach: When driving to Morne Rouge Beach, follow the main road towards Grand Anse Beach, but veer off on the side road to Spice Island Mall rather than continuing on. Pass the mall and Cinnamon Hill Hotel, where you will find the beach.
