5 and 6 - Nettle Bay / Baie Nettlé

Nettle Bay, seaside

Several resorts along the waterfront maintain this long stretch of sandy beaches. Rocky edges and strong currents make swimming difficult here, however light breezes make this little frequented spot quite pleasant. Once a month, the beach comes alive with electronic music, cocktails, and a light show—all you need for a successful full moon party, hosted by a restaurant-bar called Boho.

Nettle Bay, lagoon-side

These pretty beaches shaded by palm trees are stocked with the amenities provided by the hotels along Simpson Bay Lagoon, like Hôtel Hommage and Hôtel le Flamboyant, among others. While swimming is not recommended, visitors enjoy wakeboarding and jet-skiing on the lagoon.
