Anse Tillet

A bit of a rough journey to go with the rougher waves, Anse Tillet is a less visited beach that is perfect for a private getaway with the entire family. People who want to relax can do so with the privacy of a forest blocking any signs of civilization, while those looking for some activity can ride and fight the waves.

Located on the northern side of the island of Basse-Terre, 1.8 miles north of Cafeiere, You should consider stopping by even if you aren't staying very close. When you need to spend the afternoon away from tourist-filled hotspots, you should venture a little farther from the city, and a little closer to Anse Tillet.

How to Access The Beach
The route to the beach is easy for most of the trip, but the last leg can get a little bumpy. Following Highway N-2 North, after the first curve once hitting the northern coast you will be able to see a turn off. This road simply does a half circle, bringing you back to N-2. However, half way down the road there is a dirt road which leads straight to the beach.

Amenities and Ambiance

The beach appears to be carved right into the forest and wedged between two rocky shores. Other than the many trees to the south and rocks two the east and west, Anse Tillet is defined by the beautiful views of some deserted islands over the wavy seas.

Please note that public restrooms are not available, but you may be able to find facilities at a nearby business.

Anse Tillet offers an idyllic and relaxing getaway, in part because the region surrounding the beach contains little build-up and is free of urbanization.
