Back Cove

Beach - Terre-de-Bas

This small sand beach is a quiet sanctuary frequented by vacationers and a few fisherman, who may be seen assiduously repairing their nets and fish traps, and working on their boats. From a small hill shaded by coconut palms, visitors enjoy a sweeping view of nearby Pointe Miquelon, the tip of Pointe du Gouvernail (“Rudder Point”), and the ocean, with Basse-Terre (Guadeloupe) in the background. Ships used Anse à Dos for loading and unloading operations until 1951 (the wharf remains), after which Grande-Anse took over as the island’s main port.
