Fodor's Expert Review Le Galion
A coral reef borders this quiet, protected beach, part of the island's nature preserve. The water is calm, clear, and quite shallow, so it's paradise with young kids. It's a full-service place, with chair rentals, a good restaurant, and water-sports operators. Kiteboarders and windsurfers like the trade winds at the far end of the beach. On Sunday there are always groups picnicking and partying. To get here, follow signs to the Butterfly Farm and continue toward the water. Amenities: food and drink; parking; toilets; water sports. Best for: partiers; small children; swimming; windsurfing.
