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. 

The Area's Beaches

There are a good group of beaches to consider visiting on the island. If you are hoping to enjoy some peace and quiet, you will be happy to know that several of these beaches are relatively secluded and quiet. Just click on the name of each beach to read a detailed article concerning that beach.

Les Pompierres

Grande Anse: The major beach on Terre-de-Haut, Grand Anse stretches for about a quarter of the island's eastern shore. While you can always expect there to be someone on the beach, the size of it means that you may not even notice them.

A second place 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.

Review the following table to see beaches that you'll find on the island.
