The beaches of Deshaies are as picturesque as any other on the island, with their white sands occasionally dotted with debris that have washed ashore, and views that stretch for miles.  Although the waters can be rough on occasion, for the most part families find them a safe place to swim and relax in the sand.

Beach Choices In The Area

You will discover several beaches to consider visiting in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at several locations, for vacationers who enjoy this relaxing pastime. Just click on each beach name for a detailed review of that section of the coast.

Anse Riffiet: As the main Northern Coastal Highway: N-2, passes through Riffiet, a road to the West will take you right to the beach. If staying in Riffiet, you could probably walk, though anywhere else a care will be needed.

Another option for beach-goers to consider is Anse du Petit Bas Vent. The smooth sand and beautiful water makes this beach a popular one, especially among visitors to the Northern Coast.

Anse du Vieux Fort: The north coastal highway of N-2 has an left turn you can take right before entering Plessis Nogent that will take you to Anse de Vieux Fort.
