Located at the southern entrance to the bay of Le Marin, Pointe Marin beach is one of the island's top 5 most beautiful beaches. Its fine white sand, blue water and coconut palms offering welcome shade make it one of the island's most pleasant swimming spots.

It also has public showers for rinsing off after a swim. The atmosphere is very family-oriented, with families and groups of friends choosing this place to spend the day. At weekends, the site is very lively. So you can enjoy the local warmth, often with live music.

Snacks and refreshment stands are available on-site. Swimming is supervised. Various activities are on offer, including introductory scuba diving (sea outings and water sports equipment hire), canoe-kayak and jet-ski rentals.

Vehicles are required to pay an entrance fee, so remember to bring a few euros (less than €5) if you're coming by car.

To get there, head towards the commune of Sainte-Anne, just before the entrance to the village, where the signs point precisely to this beach.
