With crystal-clear water, without waves, and with a very beautiful coral reef just a few meters from the shore. Many tropical fishes and multi-coloured corals. Ideal place for snorkelling.

This is the place to go if you want a drink. Anse Vata does not have many bars but here they are. They do happy hours at the end of the day, good for a drink before dinner. There a few restaurant around too.

beach is sheltered, sea temperature is pleasant and allows up to an hour of snorkelling before you feel the chill.

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. Also if you feel safer with life guards around, you'll be well looked after. I rate the snorkeling over any of the other beaches in the area, mainly because you're not paying... More

Beautiful place and bars and restaurants for all ages. Male staff/manager at La Barca was our only unpleasant experience in terms of his manner.Aside from him everyone was helpful and friendly.

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.
