Anse Marcel beach :
Anse Marcel in the north of the island is a beautiful beach nestled in a cove surrounded by lush green hills. The waterfront village of Anse Marcel spreads out around the Port de Lonvilliers, hotels, restaurants, residences, and magnificent villas nestled in the hills. This remote bay is protected from the wind, so why not take a dip in the calm and shallow lake-like waters? It’s a great place for families with children. Anse Marcel Beach is an idyllic spot to laze about on a hotel beach chair and to grab lunch at one of the area’s sophisticated restaurants.

You might even come across a small deserted beach nearby, nestled between the hills, which is mainly visited by a few happy cows. It’s a pocket of paradise for those who find it!
