Plage de Malendure, Bouillante

3.7
#2 of 6 in Beaches in Basse-Terre Island
Black shimmering sands and calm waters, Plage de Malendure is known amongst scuba divers as the top place to spot turtles on the island. Located on the west coast of Base-Terre, the bay's crystal clear waters and the draw of swimming with turtles is too tempting to resist for scuba divers. Leafy palms surround a handful of colorful beach shacks, providing refreshments and scuba rental.

  • First not in the water, and already, I'm walking on a sole or something else, undetermined. It is neither cleaned nor respected. Apart from the activities of the islets, this beach is not interesting.

  • A most surprising with this black sand beach! However, given the recent passage of Hurricane we have seen that all had not been able to be cleaned. But it's a beach to see! Plenty of activities are proposed, and we could even see a turtle ;) In addition this beach is located just in front of the Cousteau reserve and the îlets Pigeons!

  • The Storm Maria has probably done some damage but this hyper tourist spot wasn't really worth! I don't understand that, users of the sites (Restorer, lessor, diving club, etc...) do not make the nature that she their saves... a little cleaning would still have to be done! Not to mention the exorbitant price of restaurant...
