Positioned near the heart of the island of Martinique, 6.4 miles north-northeast of Le Robert, Anse l'Entang is on the North East coast of the island, You should think about stopping by whether or not you're staying nearby. The beach is set in a rather urbanized area, but that doesn't mean the beach itself will be found too congested. Instead, you will typically find yourself with plenty of room to stretch out.

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.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, which is something to consider if you're bringing the kids, or plan to spend all day outside.
