Boucan Canot Beach is absolutely breathtaking. I found it to be the most beautiful beach on the entire island!! Perfect spot for picnicking or catching a tan.. Great tidal pool as well. Lots of food options on the promenade.

We came for lunch and a swim and it didn’t disappoint. Plenty of options along the beach front. The protected plunge pool off to the right was perfect and had life guards on hand.

Our hotel was at boucan canot. The beach is nice. But swimming is strictly forbidden. There were huge waves. Some nice restaurants are next ro the beach with affordable prices. Nice place to watch the sunset.

Wonderful white sand beach with lots of surfers and with shark net. If you don't like waves this shouldn't be your first choice. But don't miss to watch the sunset at one of the restaurants. Wonderful place to watch surfers

We came across the beach by accident. What a great find. We went there 2 days from St Gilles. Short drive. There is restaurants, but also an option to make your own lunch on the beach. Beautiful snorkeling! We loved it.

Our accommodation was in Boucan Canot so we spent considerable time at this patrolled beach. It is a "safe beach" with shark nets. There is also a sea pool which is good for children. Depending on the tides, there can be some big waves rolling...More
