Fodor's Review

This beach is particularly popular with families with small children, as there's a gradual slope, no drop-off, and a long stretch of shallow water. The calm water also makes for good snorkeling. To get here, go to the seamen's church near the main plaza, and then head in the direction of Marigot. Continue until you see Le Salako Snack Bar and some scurrying chickens, maybe some goats and—voilà!—you'll spy a palm-fringed, half-moon bay with tawny sand. Saintois

women may be at the entrance selling snacks and drinks. The curve of the beach is called the Bridge of Stone and you can walk it—carefully—taking a dip in the crater that fills with water from the Atlantic. Morning sun is best; then, return to Salako for some grilled fresh fish and a cold one. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: snorkeling; sunrise; swimming; walking.
