Beaches in Deshaies

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.

Which Beaches Are Available?

You will discover a large selection of beaches to consider visiting in and around the area. Snorkeling is an option at several locations, if some of the people in your group are so inclined. You can click on the name of each beach to read a detailed article concerning 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 place to consider is Anse du Petit Bas Vent. The little brother of Anse du Grand Bas Vent, Petit Bas Vent is actually the more popular one. This is likely to be due to the fact that this beach has a resort just steps from the sand.

Anse du Vieux Fort: Located all the way to the north of West Guadeloupe, Anse du Vieux Fort offers a compromise between a tourist hot-spot and a secluded beach. While popular, Anse du Vieux Fort is in a more residential and more quiet part of the island, and the mood definitely passes over to the beach, where visitors come for a nice stroll, refreshing swim, or a warm nap on the sand.

Take a moment to look through the table just below for more information about your options.
