Nice beach with chairs and umbrellas. There is a restaurant with a bathroom. It's a nice beach but the waves a really big almost all of the time! It was my 3rd time in the island and it's always the same at Baie Rouge! Not recommend for young kids.

Great to see but not to stay. We literally got taken out while lying on our chairs by a massive wave! Lost my shoe in the water, had to get rescued by a staff member, quite funny actually. Very scenic and that's about it.

Really! But I don't want to say too much more...it may get crowded otherwise. Ask Shawn to make you a fab cocktail and Venus will get you your beach chair for an all day perfect day!!

We spent a lovely afternoon at this beautiful beach, which is quite secluded and not too crowded. The sand is beautiful, rocky entry into the water; the water was a little rough the day we were there. Chairs and umbrellas are $5 each. Definitely worth a visit.

The staff at this beach was super helpful by setting us up in good spot. We were near the far end of the beach where the rocks were less of a nuisance, and the waves were fun without being too overpowering (good for the small children in our group with some adult assistance). Excellent drinks & mahi mahi sandwiches. Getting... More

Purchased lounge chairs on shore of beautiful Red Beach. Waited a LONG time for grilled food from vendors, but very good. Saw a large yellow tailed snapper (?) fish within 5 feet of shore and saw some casual topless/nude beach goers down the beach in a discreet and nature lovers paradise. Go with your love and let grandma watch the... More

Beautiful beach with crystal clear water. Bring your own food as the wait for food can take over 1 and one half hours - chez Raymond does not know what he is doing except make drinks, and even that could take a considerable amount of time.

It is out of the way and you must be attentive to the turn off. The parking area is a mess of potholes and rocks and may make you uneasy, Once, however, you enter the beach, you will realize it is well worth it. They will offer chairs for rent and we highly recommend eating at Chez Raymond (the best... More
