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.
