Great beach. Wide and long. Crystal clear water. One of my favorite 3 beaches on the island. Definitely a must visit when you come to the island.

Great beach for an early morning walk before the sun is fully up. Not much cover unless you're staying at the spa so a bit hot midday day. Great fun swimming in the waves

Anse de Flamands is a great beach, it's very long and wide and has decent waves to liven up a swim. The far end from the road down to it has villa rentals and easy parking on the road, the end nearest the road down is harder tp park for and has the oh so stylish Isle De France Hotel... More

Probably the easiest beach to get to as far as available parking. The waves were rough when we were there not sure if that is normal or it was a rough day.

More developed than the others, but a beautiful stretch of sand with a hotel for lunch at one end. I loved this beach for walking.

Picture perfect for taking photos and taking in the rays. Beautiful stretch of coastline. Not much shade so be sure to take your sun screen and a larger hat to protect you from the sun. Best visiting in the late afternoon, stunning sun sets.

We stayed a 3 minute drive away at Auberge de Terre Neuve, and had an ocean view of the beach. The sun was a little strong and we were a little red from Gouverneur Beach the day before, so we just walked it. The beach is wide and the white sands make it perfect for long walks. The surf was... More

A great beach for swimming and burning your skin to a crisp! A wonderful stretch of white sand. Better to visit at 5PM-6PM. Even early in the morning the sun is a killer.

Flamands is a very pretty, wide beach that is just begging you to take a long walk. Unfortunately, the day we chose the winds were absolutely, horrible. The sand wasn't just blowing it was sandblasting you to the point it hurt. Maybe next time.
