We decided to take a drive to Pointe des Chateaux on our last day in Guadeloupe. So glad we make the trip. The sweeping, dramatic views from the top of the climb are the best we saw on our trip. While the climb up to...More
we drove from Bouillante all the way to the tip of the island at Pointe des Chateaux. the place reminded me of a scene from a medieval movie. barren area, with couple of old timers selling stuff (home made coconut icecream was super) and a...More
One of the best thing somebody has to visit in Gouadeloupe.View is amazing,you can see the waves on the rocks.Wow!If it is windy i think it will be better while you watching down the angry atlantic ocean!!!!
Absolutely worth a quick visit. The sweeping panoramic views are spectacular. Trails up the hill are easy, but best done with sneakers. Chez Jeanette coconut sorbet after hits the spot. She is an older lady who works from the back of her truck.
We drove here around midday from Le Gosier as part of a day trip to the east side of the island. Watching the water crash onto the rock formations is incredible the view of the ocean is worth the trip.
This is one of the best places to see the sea in the island, there is place to walk with the children, tou can go to the top of the mountain but is a little risky with children.
There is a beach 100 m next...More
Pointe des Châteaux was the highlight of our trip. Leisurely hikes with maximum and outstanding views. Make sure to walk along all the paths because each spot offers different and spectacular views. Def try out the buttery coconut sorbet from the older lady in the...More

We went toward sunset and the colors were unbelievable. However, it meant a drive back in the dark (to Point a Pitre) which wasn't so fun. It would be much easier if you were only driving back to St Francois, or even Sainte... More

Just returned from Guadeloupe - trip report (long) (46 Replies)
We just returned from a wonderful week in Gwada, our first time there. We were a family of 5 (youngest age 15), later joined by two more family members who planned to stay on longer. Given our number, we chose to rent a villa in Sainte-Anne, which I will review separately. Some impressions: Flights – the new Norwegian Air non-stop from Boston was excellent. Comfortable planes (737s), friendly service, food available (for a price), gate to gate in 4.5 hours. There was a significant...More

Guadeloupe trip report. (2 Replies)
Guadeloupe 2015 Observations on Guadeloupe: French. Guadeloupe is a very French island. By that I mean what is mostly spoken by the locals is French or Creole. My knowledge of both those languages is very low, but my wife is from Haiti, so she speaks both fluently, so we (or I should say she) had no problems communicating. But if you only speak English, it could be difficult. You might be okay at a large tourist resort, but we did not stay at one, so I cannot speak to that. I am using the...More

I just found this older post and would like to thank the original poster. This is a nice report. Of course, some things have changed - it's now much easier to get to Guadeloupe thanks to the Norwegian Air nonstop flights from Baltimore/Washington, Boston, and New York. Also, I really don't think the language issue is that much of a problem - I've stayed at smaller places run by very nice people who have done their absolute best to help, even though their English is as basic as my French....More
Beach reviews so far (1 Replies)
We have been on Gwada for for days so far and have visited several beaches. Since tripadvisor doesn't have these listed yet I thought I would share our experience. Please note that we didn't visit any of these more than once. Le Moule: Plage de l'autre bord - nice long beach with a little sheltered (small reef self) near shore which is great for young kids as it diminishes waves. Palm trees on shore form shade and a few covered picnic tables. It was windy the day we went but waves weren't...More

Too bad TA doesn't allow to share image on forum. I would have made a list of Guadeloupe beaches with real pictures. Anyway, other beaches I love : -Port Louis : Plage du Souffleur. One of my favorite. Calm water, turquoise infinite pool, perfect location to watch sunset. You can park few kilometers after cimetière and have a place for yourself ;-) -Anse Bertrand : Anse L'aborde and Plage de la Chapelle. Both great beaches. Few waves but lagoon-protected. Cool snorkeling after the...More
