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. 

Which Beaches Are Available?

You will discover a large number of beaches to consider in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at some of the beaches, for vacationers who are so inclined. Just click on the beach names to read a detailed article concerning that beach.

Anse des Sables

If you love to snorkel, a location providing that option is Jalouise. This beautiful beach can only be reached one of two ways -- either through the Jalousie Hilton Resort, or by boat. Those not staying at the resort are still welcomed, however.

A second location 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 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.
