Although the surrounding area continues to depend on agriculture, Sainte-Anne thrives largely thanks to tourism, offering visitors modern infrastructure and plenty of chances to experience the authentic local lifestyle.

There's much more to do: get outside with Plage de La Caravelle, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, take an in-depth tour of Memorial Acte, and enjoy the sand and surf at Plage des Raisins Clairs.
