Beaches in Grand Anse

Sheltered by the crescent moon shape of the coast, Grande Anse features beaches of calm waters making it a great destination for not-so-strong swimmers and snorkelers.  On land, the sand is soft and white and the beaches are baked by private homes and luxury accommodations.  It is an all around calming experience to visit this west coast destination.

Pick Your Ideal Beach

There are an abundance of beaches to choose from in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at some locations, for visitors who enjoy this relaxing pastime. You can click on the name of each beach to read a detailed article concerning that beach.

Grand Anse Beach

If you like to snorkel, a place offering that option is Quarantine Point Beach. Surrounded by rocky coastline, Quarantine Point Beach itself has soft peach sand and emerald green waters, with a cluster of coral reef just off shore.

Another good option for snorkeling fans is Parc a Boeuf Beach. Parc a Boeuf Beach is a nearly straight stretch of grey sand along the southern coast. The beach is clean, and enjoys emerald green waters that wash over a small collection of coral reef just off shore.

Magazine Beach: Although Magazine Beach is a public beach, the close proximity to Rex Resort makes it so that the populous of the beach on any given day is comprised almost entirely of resort guests. Still it is never overly crowded, so you can lay out and soak up the sun without fear of knocking into another guest.

Be sure to look through this table for more information about your options.
