Despite the influx of tourists who descend upon the island on a daily basis, the beaches of Terre de Haut are still so beautiful that they will easily spoil you for beaches throughout the rest of the country.  The shores are thick with coconut palms which provide shade, while the waters immediate to the shore are shallow and clear, making for perfect snorkeling grounds. 

Beach Choices In The Area

You will find a handful of beaches to consider visiting on the island. If you are hoping to have a long stretch of sand to yourself, you're in luck, since some of these beaches are fairly secluded and lightly used. To read a detailed article concerning any specific beach simply click on the names of the ones you would like to learn about

Les Pompierres

Grande Anse: Various parts of Grand Anse look different than others. In some spots you will find a well maintained area with smooth sand and in others you are likely to find a more natural beach with trees and vegetation on the sand.

A second place for beach-goers to consider is Les Pompierres. Les Pompierres can be reached by taking Rue de la Saline north.

Anse Rodrigue: Luckily, the beach has its own named road. Starting at the airport, you can take Route de l'Anse Rodrigue Southeast all the way to the beach, where the road dead ends.
