Anse l'Entang

Serving mostly the resorts and villas in the area, Anse l'Entang is often busy with tourist and locals from the nearby villages.

Located near the heart of the island of Martinique, 6.4 miles north-northeast of Le Robert, Anse l'Entang is on the North East edge of the island, You should consider stopping by even if you aren't staying particularly close by. Visitors will find that, while Anse l'Entang is certainly not secluded, it's not the most crowded beach on Martinique either. This makes it an excellent choice for families who want to enjoy a beach with mild activity without having to fight other beachgoers for a spot in the sand.

How to Access The Beach
Drivers can simply follow Highway D-2 to the East, and break off at Rue de la Plage.

Amenities and Ambiance

While the beach is located very close to several accommodations, it is also in a more natural portion of the island, meaning that visitors will be seeing more palm trees than beach bars. The palm trees do actually line the beach, with a few sitting closer to the water, granting shade to guests on hot days.

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot.

What's Nearby


The beach is wonderful, but the surrounding area has a lot to offer, too. Look for it on the North East coast of Martinique. It is near Nature Reserve of La Caravelle, which is seen three quarters of a mile away, and it is one of the area's attractions.

If you want to combine a little culture with your trip to the beach, you should plan a trip to Musee de la Banane, a lovely museum found six and a half miles to the west, so it could be a welcomed alternative to hot afternoon activities.
