Plage de Grande Anse, Basse Terre Plage de Grande Anse is located near Deshaies on the northeastern coast of Basse-Terre. Because of a steep drop in the sea floor close to the shore, this beach is not really suitable for children to swim, but, the kilometer long stretch of golden sand and shady trees is an ideal place for strolling. Many visitors also rent a kayak to explore the mangrove-fringed lagoon behind the beach. Photo Credit: PKMdeNarbonne
