This beach is really nice but not too big. The house and property next to it is cool and belongs to Roman Abramovich who owns Chelsea FC. Maybe you'll get lucky he's there and you'll see his amazing yacht in the harbor. Parking lot is...More

Every day, we explored a different beach or two and Anse du Gouverneur was my favorite. Unspoiled, not crowded at all...perfect water, nice breeze, and clean sand. There is nudity on the beach, but hey, that's what being in nature is all about!
