Grande Anse


This ribbon of white sand is the most beautiful beach on Félicité, though shallow waters make swimming difficult. It's also the least visited, simply because it's the furthest from the resort. At the far end there's a lovely hammock strung between a couple of palms waiting for you. Enjoy.
