Anse du Mont

Part beach and part boat ramp for kayaks and small water craft, Anse du Mont is a very active little beach. Choppy waters make it a fun beach to swim in, while sandbars and levees make it safe. Just be sure to watch out for boats.

Located on the southeastern part of the vicinity of Pointe A Pitre, 2.3 miles east of Gosier, Anse du Mont is on the South West coast of Grande-Terre. You might want to drop by whether or not you're staying particularly close by. Beachgoers should keep in mind that, although Anse du Mont is by no means secluded, you wouldn't necessarily call it a busy beach either. This makes it a good option for families who want to make the most of their trip to the beach without having to fight other beachgoers for a spot in the sand.

Amenities and Ambiance

The beach itself has thick sand that little kids are sure to have fun digging and playing with. Other than that, the choppy water and traffic of boats are sure to keep everyone else entertained. As stated, it is an active beach though, and so you can expect other people to be here.

For your convenience, restrooms are available at Anse du Mont.

Anse du Mont's location is not near many tourist spots. Because of this, sweating to find an available amenity while at the beach is something that you will not be forced to do when arriving at the beach, in spite of what time of the day you get there.
