Saint-François - Raisins Clairs beach
Raisins Clairs beach is named after the seaside raisiniers (trees whose fruit look like bunches of grapes) that dot the beach and where it is nice to get in the shade. It is a beautiful beach which is not far from downtown. It is easy to park in the large free car park adjacent to the beach. The place is ideal for picnics practically feet in the water, under the carbets. The beach is sandy, the water depth is reasonable, it is protected by the reef (caution however when the waves pass over the reef, it can be quite powerful near the shore). Some corals watching and snorkeling. Near the beach of tits (snacks) and two small restaurants (not tested). Namely also: a cemetery dating from the colonial era was unearthed on the beach. The existence of this cemetery was known for several years due to the regular appearance of bones and coffin nails. A skull and a bondage collar were discovered suggesting he was a slave cemetery. In 2013 excavations on a strip of several tens of meters long, have helped uncover 48 graves. To date, there is no trace of these excavations.
