Sainte Anne Resort and Spa is located at the south-eastern point of Sainte Anne Island in the Marine National Park. Three beaches are easily accessible from the resort with further beaches available if you are prepared to make the effort. A small boat is also provided to take snorkellers over to the other side of the channel off the southeast coast. Fringing reef is found off the three main beaches, including: Grande Anse, facing west-north-west and backed by shallow water seagrass beds; Anse Royale which wraps round the southern end of the island and has coastal defence features off the beach; finally Anse Tortues (also known as Anse Cimetiere), which faces southeast and has a reef edge backed by a shallow water lagoon. As a result of the variety of habitats the number of species recorded was in excess of 160.
