  • From the old port you can reach Pointe Rouge quite quickly. There are shops for bathing suits as well as countless restaurants on site. Loungers can also be rented. Unfortunately, the beach is quite full and the water on site is usually very shallow.

  • Beautiful beach but it's way too many people. I don't advise people who want to go somewhere quiet.
