Anse de Grand Salines
Anse de Grand Salines Travel Guide
A short hike over a rocky path opens onto a wide, white-sand stretch. Depending on the winds, the water can be rough. For lunch, head to the open-air restaurant Le Grain de Sel (Grand Saline Beach; 590-590/524-605; lunch for two $80), a five-minute drive away.
Rarely crowded, Gouverneur is located over a mountain pass and down a steep hill on the island's south end. It's no-frills, so pack snacks.
