Fodor's Expert Review Anse des Pitons
The white sand on this crescent beach, snuggled between the Pitons, was imported years ago and spread over the natural black sand. Accessible through the Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort, or by boat, Anse des Pitons (Sugar Beach, Jalousie Beach) offers crystal-clear water for swimming, excellent snorkeling and diving, and breathtaking scenery—you're swimming right between the Pitons, after all. The underwater area here is protected as part of the National Marine Reserve. Neighboring resorts Ladera and Boucan provide shuttle service to the beach. Amenities: food and drink; toilets; water sports. Best for: snorkeling; sunset; swimming.
