We arrived at La Desirade late the firt night and were somewhat schelptical. However when the sun rose the following morning we were pleaseantly surprised. The beach is about 10m from the front door and the amazing sunrise welcomed us into paradise. La Desirate is situated a at Pointe au Sel which is not swarming with tourists and as a result we had the whole beach to ourselves the 3 days that we were there. Accross the street is a local bakery and down the road is a supermarket whch stockss all the basics that you will need for a self-catering holiday. A 20 minute walk away is Anse Royale with a beatiful beach and ATM's. If you dont feel like walking then take the local bus (there is a bus stop a few meters away) for only R5. La Desirade is a great value for money accommodation, safe and private I would recommend to anyone. They also arrange transfers on request from the airport.
