  • Too well this beach. Shadow in the morning. Not a lot of wind. Takes a mask to see the turtles and other fish

  • This side of Martinique is very nice and beautiful. We took the opportunity to do some dives in snorkeling fins

  • Here is a beautiful beach, we swam above the turtles. Possibility to drink an aperitif in the bar right next to the beach. Few parking spaces but we easily found a place.

  • Nice beach, not toooo busy if you get there before midday. Visibility for snorkelling is pretty good, much better than anse noire. Saw a turtle!!! Very shallow.. Lots of fishes! Beware of stingers, theres a few and can be a bit of a surprise if you're not expecting it. Free parking if you can find a space!
  • Five stars for the opportunity to see green turtles, don't come to the beach without a snorkel gear! Sad however that many tourists does'nt follow the rules and respect the turtles privacy. Beside the snorkel, there is not much too it, the beach is small and I have seen better ones on the island. Resturants available, parking can sometimes be a nightmare.
  • Simply Wonderful. Warm enchanting beach and scenery.
  • Small beach, where you will find beautiful fish and turtles are good looking! Attentions to the microscopic jellyfish, which are like small electric shocks, tingling, however, do not last more than 10 min. parking difficult.

  • Tourists are many, it is quite difficult to park. Arriving, you discover a magical décor, exceptional seabed, there are thousands of small fish and especially turtles (a small, a medium and a huge). 3 approach to the beach about 2 meters of depth. Finding themselves in a dozen centimeters of the shell of a turtle we realize the chance we have, it's unreal and magical. The beach is not very shaded but it isn't disturbing because we spend all our time alongside the turtles, which must not be afraid of people because they remain for hours at their side.
