Grand Anse Beach and Morne Rouge Bay are a pretty close tie, both are white sanded with lots of space and few crowds. Grand Anse allows visitors to walk its full length and take exercise, while dipping in and out of the gentle waves. Morne Rouge’s trees and stunning sunsets make it the perfect place both for a day on the beach or a cocktai after dark.

Experience cuisine that is infused with nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and other locally grown spices, either at a local, traditional bar or at one of the international hotels.
