Beaches on Marie Galante

There are about 10 beaches on the island of Marie Galante, and all are known for their clear waters and deserted sands.  It is easy to feel as though you are the only person to have ever discovered the shores because you'll rarely encounter another person while you frolic in the sand.  The best part about these beaches is that a coral reef system just off the coast keeps the waters calm enough that families find it easy to relax here.

Pick Your Ideal Beach

You will find an abundance of beaches to consider on the island. Just click on the name of each beach to read a detailed article concerning that section of the coast.

Plage de Folle Anse

If you want to snorkel, a beach where that is an option is Petite-Anse. Soak up some sun on the beach or head out to deeper waters for a magnificent scuba diving excursion. Scuba trips depart from the shores three times each day.

A second alternative that beach-goers can consider is Anse de l'Eglise. Enjoy canoeing in the fresh water alongside the beach or hike through the mangrove swamp. Anse de l'Eglise is a great place for water and nature lovers.

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.
