Lots of choice and more upmarket than Anse Vata. Nice beach walk. Cheap and dear eats. Nicer beach for swimming than Anse Vata

Has a lovely beach, no surf, but nice to swim and wade in..Across the road from the beach there are many good quality restaurants with that French feel, looking over the water. Also some with more basic meals such as hamburgers. Great atmosphere at night.

The beach is not too far from the other main beach strip and also not too far from the city centre. It's a great spot for swimming.

The advantage of this beach is that it is devoid of winds as just "around the corner" because of the piece of land separating the beaches. This one is a bit sandier and smoother and the access to the water is nicer. Lots of good swimming and snorkeling and if you like cross the street for a drink or a... More

We don't normally have 'beach holidays' but we were chilling out so this was an ideal spot for reading and relaxing. Clean and warm water, not too busy even at weekends.

The ideal place to sit and enjoy watching the water and people. Plenty of bars and restaurants. A pleasant walk from there to Anse Vata Beach
