Baie Aux Prunes / Plum Bay Beach

Secluded Plum Bay, or Baie aux Prunes in French, is just beside Long Bay and well known to surfers. The beach is very little visited, although beautiful and without a doubt one of the most peaceful and romantic beaches on the island. It appears that a plum in English is a prune in French, but we couldn´t figure out how the bay got its name from.

At the northern end of the beach is the rock of Plum Bay, a rather pretty site that expands into the Falaise des Oiseaux (Birds' Cliff) as you continue around the island. The road of "Falaise des Oiseaux" on the French side of Terres Basses/The Lowlands is also the access road to the beach. Just follow the signs to the parking area.

There's not a lot of sand, but snorkeling is good, and when you wade into the water, watch out, as corals are just off the beach.

If you want to get away from it all, this is one of the most beautifully intimate and calm beaches around the island. At the very western tip of the island, it is also a great romantic sunset spot.

Plum Bay is as peaceful as it gets, but bring your own supplies as there are no amenities. There are only few people on the beach, but during the few visits we have made, all were wearing clothes.
