Access this beach by heading north from Roseau on Leblanc Highway and enjoy the stunning coastal sightseeing on the way.

Amenities and Ambiance

The beach is adjacent to a tiny village and great for watching the movement of local fishermen as they come and go. The waters are calm and warm and the beach is clean and flat. There are stunning views of the Caribbean sea and a great panoramic view of the inland mountains.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot.
