Another reason why Marie-Galante is a popular place for tourists are the wonderful beaches you can visit here. Apart from the beach at Capesterre in the south, all the great beaches can be found in the northwestern part: between Saint-Louis and Vieux-Fort.
Starting south you'll first see the Anse du Mays: a long stretch of beach where you hardly find any tourists. The beach is located directly at the roadside, but because there are still a line of trees between the road and the beach you're calm there anyway. Another great thing: when we were there a traditional bull-chariot was led over the sand as well.
One of the other beaches to the north are the fantastic Anse Canot, where you find white sand hidden in a bay and beautifully blue water. Again; you'll find hardly any people here. This beach is my favourite of all beaches on Guadeloupe!
And then further north you'll find Plage du Vieux-Fort, a small beach with view of the small island of Vieux-Fort a few hundred metres in the sea. This beach is more popular and therefore busier.
Address: Northwestern Marie-Galante
Directions: Follow the D205 from Saint-Louis towards Vieux-Fort and you'll find them all...
