“Wide long beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

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

“Beautiful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

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 and the oh so expensive Taiwana Hotel too. In the middle there is La Langouste a seafood restaurant that we've never eaten at as it always seems infested with small children at lunch.

“Great Beach with plenty of parking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

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.

“Long swath of lovely sand”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

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.

“Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

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.
