There's nothing else here at Bois Jolan, maybe some cows and sugar cane, but otherwise it just has visitors coming to the make shift car park running behind the vegetation. It's a much less frequented beach than Sainte Anne, and feels quite empty out of tourist season.The water is a lovely light blue colour and mostly shallow with patches of... More

Lovely beach...not an easy access...but worth the effort. Lots of shady areas. Long beach you can walk....and swimming is in shallow waters....great for kids. Excellent area for a picnic.

if you have children, it is the best place to take them to but it takes a bit of driving to get to it

This beach is a little hard to find... It is worth taking a little time to find it. You can always ask the local for help, they are very friendly when you have a big smile when you talk to them. Once you get there, you will be surprise how calm it is... It is a great place to relax... More

We found this beach thanks to local guy who recommended it. The place is hidden in the palm tree and some bushes quite far from the main road and not so many posh people visit so you can really feel atmosphere of paradise there.Shallow deep azure water, white sand and palms above you. You cannot miss it being on Guadeloupe.

The beach at Bois Jolan, located 3 km east of "downtown" Sainte-Anne, is accessed via a signed roundabout on the national road and following the paved road 1.2 km until dirt road entrances. There are two main accesses to this beach, the first one being a small parking lot while the second one has a larger parking lot and follows... More

This beach is great for kids or people who want to do camping. The sea is not very deep and very few people going there. Its also a nice spot for a nap by the sea apart from that nothing much. The beach is also not well indicated so we went a bit round before finding it. Well, try it... More
