A renowned beach sometimes covered with sargassum
Like almost all the beaches on the east coast of Martinique, Anse Michel beach is not immune to sargassum, pelagic and rootless brown algae that ocean currents bring up and wash up on this part of the island. However, this phenomenon is not continuous, and it happens that there is no sargassum for several months. With or without sargassum, Anse Michel beach, which stretches over more than 0.6 miles (1 km), is considered one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Located near Cap Chevalier in the municipality of Sainte-Anne, it is bordered by grape trees and imposing coconut trees. The coral reef, 1,640 ft (500 m) off the coast, protects it from the Atlantic swell visible in the background and creates a lagoon with clear, calm waters suitable for swimming as well as kitesurfing, windsurfing, and kayaking.
