Boucan-Canot Beach

Recommended
Boucan-Canot beach is considered the finest on Réunion. Along with Roches Noires beach in Saint-Gilles, it is the only one where the water gets deep quickly. At the moment, swimming is (temporarily?) restricted to a man-made pool due to sharks. People from Saint-Denis come en masse at the weekend, creating traffic jams on the narrow (one-way) seafront road, stopping at one of the snack bars for bouchons and samosas, a cold beer or a glass of guava juice.
