The beach is always windy but you can swim in the waters among the waves. You have restaurants and cafes where you can rent chairs and have lunch or dinner. We spent a lot of time there and loved it.

Best beach to have a bbq in the southern part of then island. Its close to shopping centers in the town of Vieux Fort. Lots of shade from the trees which is convenient for setting up a grill and for parking your vehicle.

Yes, it's walkable. It's much better than the beach at coconut bay! Very clean, and a very nice walk where u will see the locals, as well as the horses on the beach!
Hi. Could someone tell me how late the pools and hot tub are open at the resort? Thanks!

I'm sorry - I don't know how this question ended up here. I asked this question on Saturday about a resort. I have no idea how the exact same question showed up about a beach on Sunday. Thanks for the info though!
