Sainte-Anne beach is quite large, and has some of the clearest water we saw on all of Guadeloupe. Compared to other beaches we visited, there seemed to be a lot more going on here. The beach was quite crowded and we had to walk around a bit before finding somewhere to sit. If you want a spot right up by... More

It's a but more crowded than some other beaches but it's fun to people watch. Great for families with young kids - the water is relatively shallow. Plenty of food and drink options right on the beach.

This beach is the most popular beach for tourists in Guadeloupe.... not necessarily the best. It's crowded, noisy and busy.

Very nice beach with clear water. No waves. Ideal for people scared of swimming. Nice spot to relax.

The best beach on the island, the shops are about a 30meter walk where you can grab a drink of any kind, and walk it back to your spot on the beach! Crystal clear and gorgeous!

St Anne Beach is a fun little visit. Check out some of the small stalls and food huts along the shore.

Many of the beaches in Guadeloupe have many submerged rocks and coral, not the case here. Ongoing kite surfing competition was a blast to watch.

We parked several blocks away, went to the flea market, ATM and back to the car. No place to sit on the beach.

This was a great little beach. We loved that there was a more diverse group of people here than at Salines. It seems to be more popular with locals. I would go as far as possible away from the Club Med and there are a couple of little restaurants that have beach chairs you can use if you buy something... More

The Plage du Bourg is the city beach and as far as I could tell the best beach. Some hotels advertised as beach front, due to erosion actually had no beach (Club Med and Hotel Le Rotabas). The water is gentle due and the sand is soft. The public beach is lined with restaurants and food trucks. On weekends, I... More
