Anse Vinty

While generally considered a local's beach, the quiet and a bit more natural Anse Vinity is a hidden gem of North Guadeloupe. With plenty of opportunities to sunbathe, swim, and do a little hiking, this beach is a prime spot to spend part of your day.

Situated near the heart of Plessis Nogent, Anse Vinty is on the North edge of Basse-Terre. You might want whether or not you're staying in the immediate vicinity. Families and groups of friends who decide to check out this beach will enjoy escaping the buzz of city life without missing the chance to do a little people watching.

How to Access The Beach
When in the town of Plessis Nogent, travelers will just need to turn off of N-2 onto one of the side roads heading north. After some finding your way, you should be able to easily get to the beach.

Amenities and Ambiance

Located just off a main road, the beach is not at all secluded. However, as it is away from the major tourist areas, there will not be any amenities located on the beach itself. In fact, the beach is part park, and with nature trails and wildlife protection, Anse Vinity is much more natural than many this close to a town.

You could always try the restaurant right on the water, if it suits your taste. Each destination around the Caribbean has its own style of cuisine, and Guadeloupe is no different. One of the most enjoyable places to enjoy delicious local specialties is right next to the coast. Sometimes, hotels offer to pack up on-the-go lunches for their guests. Otherwise, there are plenty of walk-up vendors that offer hot, on-the-go food.

There is also a snack bar here.

You will be able to use a public restroom at Anse Vinty. Happily, the off-shore waters are fit for snorkeling, so grab some equipment if you're hoping to find some interesting marine life.

Tourist who want to enjoy the amenities and services made available here will be thankful; Anse Vinty happens to be found in an area which is not as popular among tourist. As such, the availability of some facilities likely won't be decreased.
