Next, we’re going to Terres Basses. Terres Basses is a place where there’s a lot of private villas so those are all kind of being done on their own time as owners have a chance to rebuild. So it’s hit or miss when it comes to the houses there. Some houses are perfect some houses are not. The big
difference in Terres Basses right now though is Baie Rouge.
They have recently changed Baie Rouge beach. There used
to be, even back in June, some restaurants on the beach and now
they are no more. So this has turned into an absolutely clean pristine beautiful beach but there are no longer chairs to rent or food or drinks so it’s become a very private beach in the sense that you now need to bring everything yourself. It really depends on what you’re looking for. Some people like having the beach chairs in the restaurant and some people want a more peaceful place.
So if you’re looking for a peaceful beach with no amenities, that’s Baie Rouge Beach. If you’re looking for an activity this is no longer your beach. Personally, I liked having the restaurant. There are not many restaurants on beaches in Terres Basses and this was one place to get lunch or buy drinks and rent chairs and all that so it’s really a personal preference but don’t come to Baie Rouge Beach if you want to be able to have lunch on the beach and buy drinks however if you want to bring your own lunch bring your own chairs and bring a cooler full of drinks come to the Baie Rouge Beach because it’s beautiful. From what I have heard the bar (Gus’s Beach Bar) that was on Baie Rouge was actually not there legally for a long time and the residents there didn’t like it there because they lived there and didn’t enjoy all the noise. So, unfortunately, the restaurant did have to leave for the time being. I know that’s going to be disappointing to a lot of people. It actually is a little disappointing to me due to the fact that Terres Basses doesn’t really have any of those restaurants on their beaches and that was one spot you could really do it. There’s plenty of parking but unfortunately, that’s just the way things go. After that, we’re gonna go down into Marigot.
