Anse des Muriers

This small little beach does not offer much in the way of swimming or sun bathing. Rather, it mainly serves as a launching point for kayaks, boats, and other watercraft. If you want to watch the boats then this is a good place to spend some time, otherwise you will not find much to do here.

Set on the eastern outskirts of Grand Anse, Anse des Muriers is on the East edge of Terre-de-Bas. You should think about stopping by whether or not you are staying particularly close by. You will typically find plenty of beach space once you hit the sand, since the beach and its surrounding region is not stuffed with visitors.

Amenities and Ambiance

The beach is a little rocks and the water is full of anchored or tied down boats, so do not expect to swim.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here, but you may be able to find facilities at a nearby business.

Anse des Muriers brings guests a calm and relaxing experience, since the surrounding region is far from urbanized.
