When to go 
The best time for a holiday on Sainte Anne beach is a dry period from January to June. Please note, that sea water in winter is colder than in the summer half of the year. You can swim, but it won't be so comfortable like in summer. For example, some locals begin to swim only in March-April, when it gets a little warmer.
On the other hand, the weather is much more comfortable in winter. It's warm enough to sunbathe and to swim. But there is no such an extreme heat like in summer. You will feel the difference at night, when it is possible to sleep with opened windows - without air conditioning.
