Easy parking, very much a locals beach, not too stony to enter water little seaweed. Their are showers, which is good to rinse off sea water.

This beach didn't live up to the pictures. Possibly it was the time of year (August) but many of the beaches on the south and east side of Grande Terre were covered in smelly seaweed. Go somewhere else.

Very nice beach. Facilities and parking. It is great for families and just off the main road. I would not recommend it in the middle of the day, unless you are lucky enough to snag a spot under one of the trees, as the sun...More

Easy to find just before you get to St Francois. Good swimming. Snorkeling not great. Restaurant quite good. Food trucks looked enticing also.

We visited several beaches on our visit. We stopped by here to enjoy the lunch trucks and the activity. The beach itself is not ideal...crowded, sea weed. Enjoy the surf elsewhere on the island, but for a fun lunch this is good.

The Plage des Raisins Clairs was, for us, just a stone's throw from our apartment rental. We walked to the beach daily. Easy access into the water (not true for other parts of the nearby beaches which are pure rocks to the water edge). There...More

Super place for swimming and it has a restaurant right on the beach. parking, like every good beach in Guadeloupe, is tough.

Sorry, we did not need chairs at the beach, so, I am unsure. If I remember correctly, there is a small information booth in the parking lot just North of the beach. They might be able to help, or, just ask any of the... More
