Aside from Colombier Beach, we found that the Grand Cul de Sac had some of the best snorkeling and swimming. We stayed at Le Sereno and went in the water every morning while the sun was shining directly. Many refer to it as a lagoon, as the water is very calm and very shallow. A reef further out breaks the... More

Nice location and good for kids, but the better beaches are the ones you drive to. We loved Governeur's beach for example. We did take a kayak out here and cross a bit to a nice area to swim in.

The lagoon is perfect for paddle boarding. It is filled with turtles and fish. It is a very quiet beach with two very good lunch spots.

This beach may be good for snorkeling but there is no good sand and the water is not blue. Out in the distance there appears to be coral reefs and prettier water

Its a nice little stretch of beach where there really isn't much traffic. Great place to soak in some sun and not be bothered with people.

This half crescent beach is special because you can wade almost the entire way across it. While a nice breeze, the water is usually very tame. Enjoy some lunch at La Gloriette or O'Corail while you're here!

We stayed on Grand Cul de Sac at Ondines Sur le Plague for a week. It is a narrow beach but pretty to look at and has a nice breeze. There is a reef further out and a sand bar just a short walk in the water so it is good for small kids to splash around in and to... More

Excellent beach as it has a lot to do from snorkeling to jet ski rentals. It's also a nature preserve and we were able to follow a sea turtle for a bit
