We tried most of the beaches on Guadeloupe. We repeated going back to this beach. Plenty of the other beaches had excessive seaweed in the water in July. This was the best and had public access to showers to rinse sand off and a restaurant...More

It gets a bit crowded but you can’t beat the convenient location if you are in St Francois. The beach was clean although noisy on the weekend. You can take a nice walk along the beach away from Saint Francois. Enjoy!

The beach is very lovely. Shading trees are available all along. Restaurants are near. Parking is ample. Showers are also available. Restrooms are not up to standard.

Was a nice beach with food trucks. Too busy for my taste there are a couple areas to get cocktails. Typical city type beach near a school

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
