Fodor's Expert Review La Sagesse Beach
Surrounding a sheltered bay along the southeastern coast at La Sagesse Nature Centre, this secluded crescent of the finest (gray) sand on the island is a 30-minute drive from Grand Anse. Surrounded by tropical vegetation, it provides a lovely, quiet refuge. The water is fairly shallow and always calm along the shoreline. Plan a full day of swimming, sunning, and nature walks, with lunch at La Sagesse Inn's restaurant, which is adjacent to the beach. Amenities: food and drink; parking (no fee); toilets. Best for: solitude; swimming; walking.
