Fabulous beach, though it is a bit small. It has really good bathroom and changing facilities, which is such a rarity. One area is good for snorkelling with varieties of fish. Sea turtles hang out here as well and that was really the highlight for us. A crowd of snorkelers was out looking around, and three turtles swam through, down to the bottom to feed, up to the top for air and back down again. One of the three was at least a metre long (shell length). Fabulous day!

It tends to fill up quickly, and parking is on the side of the road, so for a successful day, plan on getting there no later than 8:30 in the morning, spend a few hours and head out before it gets too crowded.

The beach is small with black sand and palm trees.
There are toilets and changing places - which is rare for small places and a restaurant(nothing fancy) and a bar near the beach. I bought some very good home made coco ice cream from a local selling at the entrance.
The snorkling is very good in the area. Lots of fishes, if u come early u can catch the turtles feeding on the bottom of the ocean.
Parking is on the side of the main road and the beach is down the stairs.Better arrive early in the morning as it fills up and u can end up walking a lot.

I LOVED the snorkeling here! It was a wonderfully relaxing place to snorkel. You don't even need fins. Just float above the beautiful reefs and sit and watch the show. We saw lobsters, puffer fish, eels, squid and tons of colorful fish as well as beautiful coral. The highlight was when we saw a few locals bringing in their catch from spear fishing and were followed by 2 turtles. We swam alongside them for about 45 minutes. It was incredible!! There are a few places to eat here but we brought our own picnic. Parking can be difficult so try to come at off hours (9am or 1pm) before people come or right after they leave. Make sure you check out Anse Noir over the hill before you leave.

Upon arrival head to the reef on the left away from the cafes. The water is the clearest I have seen since Exuma. There are not millions of fish, however, the coral formations on the volcanic rock are very interesting. We also tried snorkeling Anse Noir the same day. But, the bottom being black sand and rough water made visibility poor. Also, we swam through some stinging algae that took all the fun out of Anse Noir. We much preferred Anse Dufour.

Kinda what it says in the title. Busier than neighbouring Noir beach but with better visibility. Fewer jellyfish and more wildlife.
We swam a short way out and saw sea snakes various fish and a young green turtle. All in crystal clear water.
Busy yes, but we'll worth it even if only for a short while.

An easy drive from our hotel in Trois Ilets. A turn off the main road (with a well-marked sign), continue to the end of the road. We didn't arrive until 4:00 so we were able to get a parking spot near the entrance. A bunch of steps down to the beach and walk between little huts and lots of wooden fishing boats. The beach was very crowded, even at 4:00. We found a spot and went in search of the turtles. We snorkeled on both sides of the beach, but never saw any turtles. :( Lots of sea glass to pick up. Lots of families, a few young couples, mostly tourists and a few locals. A few houses tucked away, right next to the beach. We did not eat at any of the snack shops. We could not find any public showers, but there was a smelly public bathroom. Beach was long enough to play catch with a football. Anse Noir is right up the street so you can do both in an afternoon. The setting is spectacular! Highly recommend this beach for a fun outing!

Arrived in Fort de France on RCL Adventure of the Seas. This was not on their list of excursions but our research pointed us here. Found our cab driver from two years ago, Gaeton Kanor, who was an excellent and reliable tour guide. Sad to say but the it rained, heavily at times, about 80% of the time we were here. None of the bright sun as is seen in all the site pics. We'll try it again though. We did do some snorkeling and it was spectacular for the conditions.

We were here with friends and 2 seven year olds. The beach was so pretty. It's a lovely cove with great snorkeling. We saw turtles, eels, and loads of beautiful coral and fish. There were many people, but it didn't feel too crowded. Parking was insane and the road leading here is a bit dangerous, so just pay attention. You can eat and drink on the beach as there are a few food spots, but bringing your own food is not a bad idea as they are quite busy. This beach is definitely worth a visit!

This rather small beach has one of the 22 varieties of sand on Martinique. It is clean and almost white. The beauty of the place is the clear, warm, calm water (alas, we did not see turtles) and believe it or not, the three or four French/Creole cafes that line it. The cafes (largely outdoors) y offer the opportunity to sit like the French and sip wine on a hot day and be only feet from the water. (Be warned, Martinique is actually part of France so most of the people are French speaking and frankly if you are American you may find them a little aloof. Not much eye contact and seldom a greeting as they stroll by. (And like in the south of France, some of the sunbathers are topless). This is not the usual Caribbean beach experience and we found it fascinating!
