Sometimes the great treasures can be hard to find. This is the case with this wonderful gem of a place. Along the main road on the French side past Terres Basse housing addition, on the left side of the road. There is a concrete wall (entrance) that says Baie Rouge made out of mosaic. We passed it the first time and went back. One you pull in, you are in a gravel parking lot. Two locals approached in the lot and said they would set up two chairs and an umbrella for us for $15. I highly recommend this. They are very nice and work hard in the warm sun to set the perfect oasis for you right on the water. TAKE A TOWEL. We somehow forgot to do that.
There are two bar and grills right there. One is called Raymond's and the other is Gus's. We tried Raymond and Raymond Jr. is a fabulous drink maker... try his fruit smoothies (alcoholic and non alcoholic. The food was great. I had a grilled tilapia sandwich and black-eyed peas and rice on side. Another friend had the lobster and another had a burger. All good.
My favorite beach experience ever.
