“Beautiful beach”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

This beach is a little hard to find... It is worth taking a little time to find it. You can always ask the local for help, they are very friendly when you have a big smile when you talk to them.
Once you get there, you will be surprise how calm it is... It is a great place to relax with you girlfriend if you like to hear the beautiful sound of the waves...

“Best beach on Guadeloupe and not so crowded”
Reviewed 21 January 2013

We found this beach thanks to local guy who recommended it. The place is hidden in the palm tree and some bushes quite far from the main road and not so many posh people visit so you can really feel atmosphere of paradise there.Shallow deep azure water, white sand and palms above you. You cannot miss it being on Guadeloupe.

“A beautiful natural beach”
Reviewed 12 August 2012

The beach at Bois Jolan, located 3 km east of "downtown" Sainte-Anne, is accessed via a signed roundabout on the national road and following the paved road 1.2 km until dirt road entrances. There are two main accesses to this beach, the first one being a small parking lot while the second one has a larger parking lot and follows along the beach almost to the end (we like this area best). The beach is about 1.5 km long in a very natural state which can be good and bad depending on what you want. Good because it's not as busy, untouched and natural with shallow water for swimming and palm trees for shade. Bad because, from time to time, there can be brown algae (sargasses) on the beach that hasn't been cleaned up or garbage from weekend users that hasn't been picked up. By walking along the beach, you can easily find the best spot, clean and without algae. Weekends are busy, especially with locals while week days are quieter. There are no real amenities here except a small restaurant at the second parking lot. This continues to be one of our favorite beaches in Guadeloupe.

“Nice scenery but nothing much”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

This beach is great for kids or people who want to do camping. The sea is not very deep and very few people going there.
Its also a nice spot for a nap by the sea apart from that nothing much. The beach is also not well indicated so we went a bit round before finding it. Well, try it anyway...
