We were staying at the hotel here and enjoyed daily snorkels. There is some healthy coral along the rocks and lots of fish. We noticed on weekends and a holiday, there were families here with children who enjoyed jumping off the rocks and the calm...More

This place is supposed to be good for snorkeling but I definitely wouldn't be doing that here based on when I've visited. It is a beautiful view but too much surf in my opinion. Definitely not a place to layout and catch some rays, just...More

Plunge into this little beach and the natural,jacuzzi like feel with the currents(sometimes very strong) it's a good place to cool off after a walk to Colombier!

Rocks and white sand, glittering wawes, a glorious beach, shallow waters with impressive underwater life. Every one likes to spent time here , safely, in a wonderful setting with family or friends.

Nice place to have a tranquil moment . Not really a beach though. With rocks etc . I kind of like this place, very peaceful to spend an hour or so.

A hidden gem but a must go if you like to snorkel. Parking may be difficult and it is hidden away - but worth finding!

Petite Anse is a small bay just beyond Flamands but before the goat-trail to Colombier, and the Auberge de Petite Anse hotel overlooks the bay. The beach has hardly any sand, and there are many rocks close to the shore, but once you are in...More
