Road just before/after Club Med in St. Anne. If you're not staying at CM, park along the road, walk to the beach past the creperie and keep going right around the point. You can rent boards at the windsurfing shop on the left.

This is a fun coral left right in front of Club Med/Caravelle. It's actually a pass. Works on a tiny swell, but needs mid or high tide to avoid sharp reef. There's another break a few hundred yards out that's bigger, but not sheltered from the wind like Caravelle. More of a windsurfing area, frankly. But there will be a lot of hot topless women (and a few wrinkly old ones, too!) and there's a creperie just before the beach. Great for swimming. Local guys who mostly bodyboard, and a few French boys on school break. Helps to speak French, but locals like Americans better, for obvious reasons.
Really mellow, great place to go with non surfing friends/spouse. St. Anne is an interesting town, not really safe at night. There are some expensive hotels near the Club Med beach, which is about a miles west of the town. Best waves in Guad are on the NE/E coast, obviously. But it's rocky and not really a resort area.
Well worth renting a Bic pop-out board. Be super careful of urchins/coral.
