White sand that stretches all the way into the sea and beautiful, clear water with fun, but manageable waves. Lots of local flavor and great homemade snacks. I had a wonderful homemade banana beignet that really hit the spot after a day of swimming.

A wonderful place on earth, with 28km (at least! depends on the reports) of pedestrian walkway, white sand beach, coconut trees, and the Savane des petrifications! All very easy walking (for kids/older crowd), with lots of room for you to stretch in the shade of the trees or out on the beach. The walking trail goes from Saint Anne until... More

Gorgeous drive to this amazing beach, lots of beachfront vendors and restaurants so you won't go hungry or thirsty Plop down a towel under a palm tree and jump in the crystal clear water Great way to spend an afternoon Martinique is part of France so don't be shocked when you see topless people.... The girls parading their beachwear, changing... More

A great location to stroll along into town. Calm and protected and always warm. Walk to the end and see the kite and windsurfers do their thing. Walk out on the Club Med walkway and enjoy the beautiful sunsets.

Beautiful white sand soft as farina, azure blue water of 30°C, blue sky and coconut trees everywhere you can see. Amazing sunsets. All the schmaltzy clicheés you can experience there on your own or with someone special. Just marvellouse.

Beautiful beach, golden sand, blue sea and palm trees. Truly picture-perfect. There were only a few people there when I visited to I found it very calm and relaxing. It was very easy to park, right next to the beach.

We just loved this beach! It's a long strip of golden sand, with palm trees. There is free parking and a restaurant/bar or two . You can rent sunbeds and surfboards. The sunsets are breathtaking!

Probably the most stunning beach we have visited in the caribbean. On weekends teeming with locals who make it a day out and cook BBQ's- on week days almost a deserted paradise with very few visitors. Take care to arrive early on a weekend as they run out of parking spaces

We were quite disappointed with this beach. We arrived around 10 a.m. on a Wednesday and the beach was so busy, we had trouble finding a parking place. The poorly maintained parking road is so close to the beach it detracts from the beach. The beach is smelly from the food vendor tents. The beach was not very clean either.... More
