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.
