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.

Situated in 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 should consider dropping by regardless of whether you are staying nearby. Vacationers who want a somewhat serene and secluded beach, that's also not too far from the town's amenities may really like the middle ground found at Anse du Mont. It's not the type of beach that gets packed every day, but it's also not completely secluded.

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.

You won't have to worry about finding a bathroom at Anse du Mont because there are public restrooms.

Beach-goers who are planning to enjoy the conveniences made available at this beach, shouldn't worry; Anse du Mont is located in a region which is rarely overpopulated. What this means is that there's little need to consider what part of the day you arrive, since there is a minimal chance that you be forced to compete with the other tourists who will also want access to the amenities available.
