Plage de l'Anse Dufour

Beach in Les Anses-d'Arlet
  • The road to Anse Noire beach starts at Morne Bigot, in the commune of Anses d'Arlet. The road offers a spectacular panoramic view of the Caribbean Sea. The calm, clear waters are ideal for exploring the seabed, which is rich in tropical fish and sea turtles, making it a favourite spot for snorkellers and divers.

    On the beach, you'll find fishermen's huts, yawls bobbing at anchor, and quaint little restaurants serving authentic Creole cuisine.

    The beach is on the left at the foot of the rocky spur where the road ends. To the right is Anse Noire. A staircase and wheelchair ramp provide easy access to this small fishing village.

    During the week, Anse Dufour is relatively quiet, coming alive in the evening with seine fishing. At weekends, the area becomes very busy, attracting locals, residents and tourists alike. It is advisable to arrive early to make it easier to find a parking space.

  • Location: Located halfway between Trois-Îlets and Anses-d'Arlet, turn right towards Anse Dufour and Anse Noire. It is located to the left of Anse Noire. Once parked, you'll have to go down a few steps to get there.
