Cluny Beach

Beach - Sainte-Rose

This beach is North Basse-Terre’s last stop before Pointe du Vieux-Fort and the Côte Sous-le-Vent (leeward coast). The long band of ochre sand stretches out to National Highway RN2, attracting thrill-seekers and, despite its often turbulent waters, plenty of visitors who value it for its dramatic landscape and ecology. This complex natural environment is comprised of a dune ridge rising at the edge of the wetland area of Etang du Vieux-Fort. The ochre color of the sand, characteristic of the beaches of North Basse-Terre, results from a mixture of material eroded from the dark volcanic bedrock and the limestone barrier reef of Grand Cul-de-Sac Marin. Cluny Beach is also a nesting ground for sea turtles. Exercise caution when swimming.
