“Beautiful and nearly empty beach”
Review of Sandy Beach

Sandy Beach
Ranked #4 of 13 things to do in Vieux Fort

Attraction details
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Sandy Beach is a beautiful expanse of sand on the outskirts of Vieux Fort. The beach is clean and has a few bars dotted amongst the trees. There is free parking for those in cars and a regular police presence for the reassurance of bathers.

Amongst a few of the locals (I was staying in the small village of Blanchard) the currents of Sandy Beach have a fearsome reputation. Some went as far as to say I was mad for swimming there. On a serious note, it is on the Atlantic side of the island so parents of younger swimmers and less able swimmers should take care.

Hot sand, blue water and pretty scenery. The people were lovely and I'll definitely return to Sandy Beach! Remember, it's a local beach!

lots of fish but far from the taxi drop off. to get a shuttle you have to buy something at the resort on the beach.

wonderful beach but very difficult for me (disabled) as very small windy roads to get down to beach and had to transfer to very small putput thing which was very difficult. Could not stay there but was able to reach beach with a lot of help. Would recommend this trip for able bodied people.

Pretty beach but sea better for water sports rather than swimming. This is the only negative of our stay and the pools more than made up for it
