Slightly longer than Anse du Riz but
equally popular with picnickers especially at weekends. The beach is the end
point after a panoramic trail from Bel Ombre.
Anse Major is quite coarse-grained due to the large amount
of sediment coming from inland sources. It is also a popular spot for
snorkelling due its patches of reefs. The beach is one of the most isolated
and is being monitored by the National Beach Monitoring Programme.
