Anse Taliseronde

Hidden away along the secluded Marie Galante coast, Anse Taliseronde is the place to go when you are looking for an escape. Make no mistake, this is a natural beach, without any services to speak of.

Located on the eastern coast of the island of Marie-Galante, 8.2 miles east-northeast of Grand-Bourg, You might want even if you aren't staying in the vicinity. Anse Taliseronde stands out from other beaches because it's perfect for escaping the typical tourist haunts. Many of the other beaches in Guadeloupe may be just as pretty, but are usually busier because they're right around the corner from the area's major hotels and resorts.

How to Access The Beach

Navigating the back roads of the island can be a little tricky. To make sure you do not get lost, try heading to Capesterre de Marie Galante first, on the extreme Southeast of the island, just off the main road. From there, you can take the Rue de la Marine north. This road will pass by the beach.

Amenities and Ambiance

This long beach is very remote, so expect plenty of peace, quiet, and room to move around explore. Those that decide to check out the surroundings will find mostly open fields and some lite vegetation. However, this peacefulness does not always hold true for the seas, as the beach faces the full brunt of the Atlantic Ocean. While the waves here will generally be at a minimum, stormy conditions and currents can make it unsafe for swimming.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, which is something to consider if you're bringing the kids, or plan to spend all day outside.

If you usually go for beaches which offer visitors a peaceful experience, then think about trying out Anse Taliseronde; it is back within a less urbanized sector of Marie-Galante.
