This was our favourite beach in the Deshaies area. Quiet, despite being a beach of which Death in Paradise officiandos would be aware.

Wonderful beach with plenty of shade, some waves, but still fine for swimming, and a few restaurants with great food.

Perfect place for sun, surf, and solitude in the off season. Easy to find a quiet corner by the vegetation or on the beach to watch the waves or grab a swim. Gorgeous clear water with a few little restaurants sprinkled alongside. Parking was a...More

This beach is a bit less crowded than the popular, Grande Anse nearby. It is not a great swimming beach for small children as the waves can be high, but it has beautiful turquoise water, palm trees, shade, a shower, washrooms(bring your own TP) and...More

Tidy beach, sandy sea bottom and clear water. A lovely place to spend the day, read a book under the palm tree or to watch the sunset. Not crowded, the sand is really smooth and beautiful. Also, there is a place to play volleyball.

If your looking for an uncrowded palm tree lined beach stretching for a couples kilometers, this is the place. Much more more calm than Grand Anse, there are also the usual bars and restaurants along the beach and free parking. One of the best places...More

On the right side, there are some rocks and some places to snorkel. Left side is windier. Sea bottom is declining smooth and sand is yellow and fine. I enjoyed my stay. There is no Sargassum!

We immediately fell in love with this beach - the white sand and the turquois water give a wonderful scenery. During the time we where there it was not at all crowded. There is some shade underneath a few Palm trees and along the beach....More

Yes, it was a 2 mins walk on the beach ( to your left) , you can always ask the local restaurants if unsure.

Trip Report - 5 days / 6 nights with 3 kids (3 Replies)
Just got back from 6 nights / 5 days in Guadeloupe. We flew out of JFK over mid-winter break. We bought our tickets back in June at a very good price! We have 3 young kids (7, 5.5, and 4). Day one: Flight out of JFK left on time. On check-in, they weighed our bags (all under 10kg), and then had us check them for free as the captain wanted bags checked as this was a fairly full flight. We were seated together (did not prepay for seats), left on time and arrived on time in PTP. Picked up a...More

Which part of Deshaies to stay in - without a car! (0 Replies)
I'm visiting Deshaies next year with my 13 yo daughter, and of the two villas I have in mind to stay, one is right by Plage de la Perle, and the other by Plage Leroux. The latter is much closer to the village of Deshaies, but the beach seems very small... However I'm worried we'll be a bit cut off if we go to the more northern place. I hear that there are infrequent and untimetabled buses - do you know how regular they are? And if anyone has hitch hiked around that area then do let me know,...More

Anyone familiar with Residence Simona? (1 Replies)
Hello, we are visiting Guadeloupe for our first time in April. I booked my family a house with Residence Simona. I'm a bit concerned because the location on the map doesn't seem to match the description. There are only a few reviews for this property but they are all very positive. Is anyone familiar with this property and the area? It says its very close to Plage de la Perle beach. Our friends are staying near Plage de la Petit Anse. If Residence Simona is near la Perle, do you know how far...More
