Beautiful Rouge is not the beach to plan a long walk. The sand is somewhat grainy, thus, not packed down like a "normal" beach. As a result, it comes up near or over your ankles with each step...extremely exhausting unless you're more physically fit than the normal Joe. Entrance into water is rocky and the undertow can knock you down... More

Jerry'sHole is right around the corner and a decent snorkel from the beach. You need the ocean to cooperate. First attempt we could not safely get around the corner. Second time it was awesome. One of the beaches on the french side that is a nice beach with a bar and public parking. Michael took great care of while there... More

We drove here at the advice of our local boat captain for the snorkeling. We were surprised and pleased to find this place at the far NW corner of the island (french side). not good signage, and the parking is a little cramped, so get there early.. there are plenty of places that will provide you with lounges and umbrellas...

I almost didn't want to write a review because this is my favorite beach, and I kind of want to keep it a secret! But out of the kindness of my heart I will let you all know that this beach is perfect! There's everything you need for a beach day. There are umbrellas and chairs to rent, a long... More

I loved this beach, a bit off the beaten track and you have to climb down a flight of stone stairs to get on to it but the water was clear and lovely. Good spot for snorkelling

this was our last beach stop after a long day of beach hopping. The sand was delightful. There are rocks in the water so be careful and the waves can be a bit rough. However the sunset makes it worth it. Also check our the beach bars!!!

Nice big beach, snorkeling is okay. We had the shrimp plate for $14/each, I subbed beans for fries, great beach food. The water and sand are very nice, loved the red rock! Picturesque

This is by far one of the top three beaches in my opinion. Clarity and visibility is incredible. It's a little off the beaten path but definitely worth going for it. There's two shacks to eat and buy beverages but service is not good. You can rent two chairs with an umbrella for $15 but they're a bit old and... More

Baie Rouge is a sandy beach with large stones in it. There's a quite steep decline short out of the coast. Tidal waves can be quite strong here.
