“A bit of a hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

you have to go from here to go to Coco beach. the 2 beaches are similar. you have to walk and climb to go to both and is not easy to understand which is the right path.

“Beautiful beach, but no swimming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

A very pretty beach, unfortunately, huge waves make it unsuitable for swimming just as its bigger brother Grande Anse.

“to see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

It's probably the best one between Grand Anse, Petite and Coco.
you can easily reach it from Grand Anse with a ten minutes walking. but the view and the beach will pay you back for any step you do to reach it!. it's my favourite one for the sense of isolation you have and for the great nature that sorrounds it! absolutely to be seen!

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

It takes 10 minutes to reach it from Grande Anse. There is a path through the jungle from Grande Anse and then you have to literally climb up the hill to reach it. One side of the beach is dominated by the vegetation...plants, trees and palm trees....literally full! It is wonderful for the nature all around. It is much quieter than Grande Anse.
