Fodor's Review

The white sand on this crescent beach, snuggled between the Pitons, was imported and spread over the natural black sand. Accessible through the Sugar Beach resort or by boat, Anse des Pitons offers crystal-clear water for swimming, excellent snorkeling and diving, and breathtaking scenery—you're swimming right between the Pitons, after all. The underwater area here is protected as part of the National Marine Reserve. Amenities: food and drink; toilets; water sports.

Best for: snorkeling; sunset; swimming.
