Le Galion / Coconut Grove Beach

Le Galion Beach, also called Coconut Grove, Baie de l´Embouchure, and nicknamed "Baby Beach", is the next bay to the south of buzzling Orient Bay. This laid back beach is surrounded by a coral reef that serves as a protection, providing calm and shallow waters to Le Galion.

Local parents and the French expat community used to go to Coconut Grove on the weekends for an afternoon of sun and fun for the kids. The best place to take children and non-swimmers is the Northern end, where you will probably find the calmest crystal clear waters on the island.

Le Galion is also a popular hangout for surfing, kite-boarding, and windsurfing enthusiasts. In front of the former "Le Galion Hotel" surfing is perhaps best because of the trade winds coming along the Atlantic coast.

You can wade 20 or 30 yards into the water, and your bath trunks are still not wet. It is a wonderful, low-key beach with a quiet and calm surf, perfect to visit with pre-school children.

The beach is serviced by a couple of beach restaurants and watersport shops, e.g. "Chez Pat" and Tropical Wave. You can rent out beach chairs and umbrellas, snorkeling gear, boards and rigs, kayaks, and a paddle boat. Pat also gives instructions for windsurfing beginners, and has a motorboat and a trimaran to charter.
