Trip Planner: Africa / Reunion Island / Arrondissement of Saint-Pierre / Petite-Ile / Plage de Grande Anse
Plage de Grande Anse boasts splendid sunsets, excellent surfing conditions, and a lava pool--plus a few convenient amenities. Stretching 700 m (2,296 ft), the pale sands here border a bay on the island's southern side, backed by a shady palm grove. Stick to the sheltered natural pool for swimming, or head out to the waves with your surfboard. A snack bar, two truck bars, restrooms, showers, and onsite parking make for a comfortable visit. If here at the end of the day, linger to watch the sun go down. Plan to visit Plage de Grande Anse during your Petite-Ile vacation using our convenient Petite-Ile road trip app.

Bravo La Reunion.
The beach is well organized. The swimming part is difficult. I do not recommend for families with children.
