Must see · Historic Walking Area · Tourist Spot
You'll embark on a short but reasonably strenuous hike to Pointe des Chateaux, where you're able to absorb views of the Atlantic Ocean. The climb to the cross at the summit, though fairly steep, is landscaped into a stairway. Once conquered, you're rewarded with 360-degree vistas. From here the trail reveals a rugged shoreline and eventually connects you back to where you started. Be sure to bring plenty of water and sunscreen for you trip, and sensible footwear is essential.

  • Don’t leave Guadeloupe until you see this place. It is gorgeous and there are lots of nice beaches around. Our favorite is only a 5 min walk from the parking lot.  more »

  • Amazing views. Photos don’t do this place any justice. I’m so glad we rented a car. I can’t imagine trying to take a bus here. The waves are very strong here so I wouldn’t suggest swimming.
  • Amazing view. It is a must in Guadeloupe!
