Anse Feuillard

One of the several hidden beaches along the eastern coast, Anse Feuillard is known for its powdery white sand and clear water. While this paradise is beautiful, it is also secluded and will have no amenities.

Positioned on the island of Marie-Galante, 8.4 miles east-northeast of Grand-Bourg, You should think about stopping by whether or not you are staying very close. This beach is not just a pleasant attraction, it's one of the rare "quiet" beaches in Guadeloupe. While Anse Feuillard may be a little more difficult to reach, visiting this beach instead of a more crowded one could make your experience less stressful.

How to Access The Beach
There is no easy way to reach this remote beach. You will have to take the main road all the way to the east side of the island, and then turn off on the side road that takes you to the coast. Finding the exact side road can be tricky, so it is suggested you have a guide, taxi service, or at least a high-quaility GPS to help guide you.

Amenities and Ambiance

There are many beautiful beaches along the island's eastern coast, but Anse Feuillard stands as one of the prettiest. Between the turquoise water, white sand, and lush green vegetation serving as a backdrop, this is a quintessential beach that people picture when they think of remote Caribbean islands. Just remember that as you wade in the clear shallow water, the beach is directly on the Atlantic Ocean, so currents and waves have the potential of becoming stronger than other places in the island chain.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site.

Anse Feuillard grants an angelic and relaxing getaway, in part because the location that surrounds the beach contains little build-up and is free of urbanization.
