Background:

This beach is a nesting habitation of the endangered species like turtles and other wild life or endangered species. The bathing conditions are forbidding due to the harsh Atlantic Ocean Sea current that blast the shore of this beach.

Overwhelming wave’s constantly depositing load of debris, harmful and natural litter on the beach shore. A river flows into the sea overlooking this beach which also contains a healthy mangrove.

There are hills and cliffs to the far north and south of the beach. Grand Anse can be accessible through the main Road or through tracks from the neighboring communities. A large percentage of the beach shore is sandy; ironically bottom condition appears to be somewhat stony.
