A bit of track to reach this beautiful often desserted beach. We took about 35 min to reach from grand anse, though there were directions from Union estate too stating left 2.2km was anse cocos/petite anse and right 1.6km to Grand anse on bike trail. We cycled to Grans Anse and took the trail as suggested by forum mebers to... More

This is quite like Grand Anse and just a short treck from Grand Anse. Some shelters have been built for sunbathers and all that is asked is that you purchase something from the beach bar. Worth it. Warning that the sea is very rough. I lost an expensive pair of sunglasses and one guy lost his swim bottoms!!! Escaped with... More

Although this beach is only ten minutes away from Grand Anse the gruelling heat makes it a challenge to get to. However once you arrive you're in true paradise. They have a most welcome beach shack where you can get a nice refreshing drink. Then park yourself on one of the handmade palm tree loungers. Ahhhh pure bliss....

Worth the rock climbing hike to get here. Great wave breaks for getting tossed around (yes, I still like this at 58 years old), beautiful sand, not overcrowded, and palm-branch huts for shade. The fruit drink stand makes great blends and they give you a hut for the day for if you buy a drink from them. Picturesque, of course,... More

This beach is like Grand Anse but less people. There are some huts with palm leaves they makes shade. Some people offer coconut drinks. The waves are not so strong like Grand Anse.

I love this beach after 15 mins hike only, you end up at Petite anse with shacks to hide from the sun and fresh juice selling.

take the short hike over from the end of Grand Anse- keeping going to Petit Coco if you like but Petit Anse is beautiful enough- with very few people.
