Etang-Salé beach has the largest black sand beach (a mixture of basalt, olivine and coral), it is one of the most beautiful seaside in the region. The Etang-Salé beach is "divided" into 2 parts :
  • To the south, a small beach is protected near the fishing port by a coral reef: the canoe basin is an ideal place for family swimming and for snorkeling (with a little luck, you might spot stingrays !)
  • On the north side, the large beach is open to the ocean and has no coral reefs, lovers of big waves will find it a sensational place, but currents, strong swells and sharks mean that swimming is prohibited there to this day. . To access this beach, take the beach road between Etang-Salé and Saint-Leu.
On the practical side, the Plage de l'Étang-Salé has a lifeguard station, toilets and showers. Several snack bars and restaurants can be found near the beach.
