We arrived at Anse Dufour a little after 8Am and still had to park behind about 30 cars that were already parked on the steep hillside leading to the beach. It is a beautiful, but small beach that had snorkeling on the right side. It...More

We enjoyed excellent snorkeling at Anse Dufour. The beach was smallish and rather crowded, but there was a nice sandy entrance to the water, and the snorkeling area was large enough not to feel crowded. Water calmness and clarity were outstanding, and there were many...More

The beach is small but lovely, not too many boats. This was my first time snorkelling and it was great fun. The north side of the bay had some coral and lots of small and medium sized fish. It was very rewarding. I didn't try...More

Driving there is a bit hairy, the roads are well paved but just very windy. Be ready for a challenge parking in high season so get there early or be prepared for a bit of a walk. The steep narrow road in must be taken...More

This beach is nestled in a beautiful cove. It's a popular spot for snorkeling, and if you're lucky you'll swim with the turtles. I was already sold on this location, and then it got better! At the end of the day, a fisherman came in,...More

A very nice, small beach. Might get a bit crowded over the weekends, pretty small parking. You might be able to see the turtles, especially in the morning!
