Beaches in Roseau

The beaches of Roseau are a sight to be hold, with their volcanic, rocky, black sands that even in the Caribbean are not easy to come by.  Not favored for days spend relaxing, swimming, and sunning, they are still a great choice for a visit for the vista, a walk along the shore, and and experience you'll be able to relive for generations. 

Which Beaches Are Available?

You'll discover a large selection of beaches to consider visiting in and around the area. Just click on individual beach names for more detail concerning that section of the coast.

Woodbridge Bay Beach: Although Woodbridge Bay Beach is one of the most convenient option if you're desperate to dip your toes in the warm Caribbean sea, you'll probably be happier if you venture farther out of town. This short stretch of shoreline is primarily of interest because it is right in Roseau; unfortunately, it doesn't have anything going for it beyond providing direct public access to the water right in town.

Another option to consider is Mahaut South Beach. This beach is gray and rocky like most of the beaches on this island. There are some trees near the shore for shade and the water is usually very calm.

Pointe Michel: This beach is on the islands eastern side and is fairly popular with travelers and locals because it has soft sand and a good length of shallower water for wading and safe swimming.
