Anse le Roche

Anse le Roche is one of the most secluded and scenic spots on the island of Carriacaou. Coral reefs rest just offshore, so having a snorkeling mask and fins on hand is a good idea. Visitors who spend the entire day will be enchanted by views of the sunset over the water.

Situated just outside the heart of the island of Carriacou, Anse le Roche is on the North East coast of the island, You should consider dropping by whether or not you're staying nearby. Need a place to stretch out and relax without all the fuss? To many, the best beach is one that is somewhat near the town's major conveniences, though somehow far from the typical beach-going crowd; that's why Anse le Roche is an ideal choice for many travelers.
