Petite Anse de Salines Beach

Petite Anse de Salines Beach - The Caribbean
© Jean Luc Azou

Situated between Anse Meunier and Grande Anse, Petite Anse des Salines is a beautiful white sand beach lapped by the calm turquoise ocean. As the beach is not directly accessible by road, it is one of the quietest spots on the island as not many people make the effort to walk the 500m along the coast path.

With a backdrop of low dense vegetation punctuated by coconut palms Petite Anse de Salines looks every bit the idyllic Caribbean beach. There is nothing in the way of facilities here and it is very much a wild beach. It’s the kind of place you can play at being a cast-away, particularly during the week when you might even have it to yourself.

Given the secluded location and low foot-fall it is not surprising that¬†Petite Anse de Salines is known as a naturist beach. However, I have heard reports that the authorities are not as tolerant as they once were, so that’s something to “bare” in mind!
