Anse Gros Raisin

The beginning of a marked trail along the coast, Anse Gros Raisin is a quiet, uncrowded beach with a beautiful view.

Located in Ste. Luce, Anse Gros Raisin is on the South coast of Martinique. You should consider dropping by whether or not you are staying particularly close by. Vacationers who want a somewhat serene and secluded beach, that's also not too far from the town's amenities should give Anse Gros Raisin a try. It's a little bit removed from Martinique's urban areas, but it's not totally devoid of people either.

How to Access The Beach
To get to this beach from Fort-de-France, you'll take the "Body Guard" exit and follow the road to the village of Sainte-Luce.

Amenities and Ambiance

With calm water and soft sands, this beach is lined by coconut trees and nearby several small restaurants with tables and benches so guests can dine outside with a view of the sea. One downside to this beach is that it is known for its abundance of seaweed.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business.
