At the east end of Anse Possession local fishermen anchor their small fishing boats. This part of the 1600 step long beach is not ideal for swimming. Further on, large stones in the water form occassional small swimming pools. Granite rocks along the coastline create various pocket beaches. Takamaka trees and bushes shelter Anse Possession and hide it from the nearby quiet street. The silhouette of Curieuse Island can be seen on the horizon.
