Anse La Blague


Head to Anse La Blague on the east coast if you're after a secluded picnic spot. Very few tourists make it to this isolated beach, which feels like the world's end. It has no facilities, other than shady takamaka trees to hang your towel on. You might come across a few fishers with their catch of cordonnier (jobfish).
