  • Amazing beach. It's the little sibling of Anse Doufur, but with black sand. You will find shade but not in the afternoon because the sun sets directly in front of the beach. Sometimes you can see turtles here as well, and there is a livelier underwater scene than in Anse Dufour. Make sure to check out the pelicans and the way they fish!
  • A pretty spot with a long stairway down to the water. There is a kayak rental place. The day we were there, the water was unfortunately murky and dirty, and full of jelly fish.
