Blanchisseuse Bay

Blanchisseuse Bay Review

The facilities are nonexistent at this narrow, palm-fringed beach, but it's an ideal spot for a romantic picnic. A lagoon and river at the east end of the beach allow you to swim in fresh water, but beware of floating logs in the river, as they sometimes contain mites that can cause a body rash (called bete rouge locally). You can haggle with local fishermen to take you out in their boats to explore the coast. This beach is about 14 miles (23 km) after Maracas; just keep driving along the road until you pass the Arima turnoff. The coastal and rain forest views here are spectacular. Amenities: none. Best for: swimming; walking.
