Beaches in Vieux Fort

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. 

The Area's Beaches

There are several beaches to consider visiting in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at some of the beaches, for those who are so inclined. Just click on the name of the beach for detailed information about that particular location.

Anse des Sables

One beach that's good for snorkeling 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 alternative to 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 is flanked by the Jade Mountain Resort which makes public access here difficult, but not impossible. You can get a water taxi to drop you at this beach.
