beach is sheltered, sea temperature is pleasant and allows up to an hour of snorkelling before you feel the chill. Eateries and restaurants are brilliant...coffee available all day, snacks throughout the day but the place comes into its own on a night...book a table and relax with fine foods and wines, or tapas and beer, or the american style diners...you...

Plenty of great cafes along this lovely curved beach bay. As well is a nice strip of beach to enjoy the sun -water is a gentle ripple so safe for families.

La Baie des Citrons is nicely placed, away from the heavy winds we experienced in late November, which made the swim, snorkel and chilling out the beach pleasant.

We probably liked here a little better than anse vata as it seemed to be more protected from the wind. Very similar beach though, more rocky sand type beach but still a nice place to hang out for a swim and lots of places to eat as well as lots of bars.

beautiful clear water, grass to sit on, trees to shade. Cafe's across road makes it an ideal place to soak up the sun and enjoy the beach

We stayed two weeks at the Hotel Beaurivage and everything was convenient with showers on the Beach, toilets available plenty of places to eat and relax. plus a travelling Ice Cream man works that area with his push Cart. Delicious ice creams and not expensive.

Rather more attractive scenery than at Anse Vata, and the buildings are more up market. However the food is only marginally better and the prices remain shameful.

very nice beach and protected from the wind compared to L'Anse Vata where it's always very windy...and perfect for the windsurfers and kite surfers. La Baie des Citrons est très familial.
