The beaches of Vieux Fort are often long and wind-swept, with white sands and sea grape trees backing the property.  Most are great for watersports, but locals enjoy visits to these beaches for family picnics and memory-making.  Over-all, they are quiet, but you're never far off from a bar or restaurant. 

Beach Choices In The Area

There are a large number of beaches to enjoy in and around the area. Snorkeling is an option at several locations, for those who enjoy this relaxing pastime. For detailed information about one particular beach you can click on the names of the ones you want to know more about.

Anse des Sables

If you are wanting to snorkel, a location worth considering is Jalouise. This crescent-shaped little beach used to be one of the island's black sand beaches until it was covered with powdery white sands. The real draw, though, is its arrestingly beautiful location in between some thoroughly impressive, world-famous pitons.

Another option that beach-goers can consider is Soufriere Beach. A quiet beach in the north of Soufriere Town, it is visited mainly by locals. Boaters also enjoy Soufriere as there are a number of spots for boat anchorage.

Anse Chastanet: Anse Chastanet features gigantic lush palm trees, which provide cool shady spots for beachgoers to escape the scorching afternoon sun. Rolling green hills add to an interesting contrast to the pale gray sand here.
