    Great day trip from St. Anne or St. Francois. A short trail takes you to see amazing views of the peninsula at the end of Guadeloupe island and beautiful rock formations in the ocean. Stunning. We got lucky and as we came off the trail caught site of a beautiful rainbow over the ocean. A highlight of our trip to Guadeloupe.

    While staying at Club Med La Caravelle from the US, we walked almost everyday into town. The market was amazing. The bakery on the corner delicious. But the best was our morning cappuccino at Au Bord de l’Eau at the end of the beach with the red umbrellas! They also serve a great daiquiri! Enjoy!

    Easy to take the shuttle from Le Gosier to the island. No bathroom on the island but lots of chickens. There is a café, we had slow service but the homemade coconut flan is worth any wait! Crystal clear water for snorkelling and shallow lagoon making it safe for children. Well worth the boat ride.

    A really nice museum about slavery. When I was there it was free entry so that only made it even more worth while.

    The plage offers lots of shade and is really beautiful. We enjoyed resting there and sit under a palmtree with some good reading! Recommend it!

    Easy walk with flip flops. Drive till the most southwest point of the island.
    The beach is sandy but a rough sea. Makes it impressive. Cross on the hill after the 10-15min walk where you can see over the coastline.
    Must see.

    The cab driver who took us from the cruise port told us we were going to Le Gosier Beach. It was part of the Resort Gosier, next to Hotel Fleur d’Epee. I could not find this exact beach location on TripAdvisor, but it is on the coast and part of the Plague de la Datcha (Datcha Beach) area. I think it may be around the point at the end of Datcha Beach. It took about 20 mins. by taxi from the cruise port to get here ($30US each way).
    Very surprised about the road infrastructure on Guadeloupe. Much more developed than other Caribbean islands.
    This is a small but really nice beach area with coconut palms for shade. Also, we found nice lounge chairs (free). I guess they are part of the hotel(s). There are a few hotels in this area. There is a beach bar/rest., but it is kinda pricey - part of the hotel - 5EU for a beer, and 20EU for a burger - Jeez!
    But the beach and views of Point-A-Pitre are great, with boats passing by - like ferries and freighters coming in and out of the port.
    We had a nice day here, very relaxing and the swimming was nice.
    The cab driver basically let us off next to the hotel, and we walked down the road on the right to the beach. Kind of a hidden place, unless you stay at the hotels.

    Guadeloupe has endless beaches and we went to a different one each day till we discovered Anse a la Gourde. As you enter the parking area, turn left and park at the far end and you will have a private lovely oasis to spend the day. There is a very nice restaurant opposite Chez Honore for a nice beach lunch.

    To head to Pointe des Chateaux and not stop here simply makes no sense - while both completely different, and you pass literally La Douche enroute to Pointe des Chateaux, both depict the power of the ocean and provide a relaxing, almost spiritual alike experience.

    I tried to fix the location of La Douche here already 3 times... it still shows incorrectly around St Francois marina... simply use Google Maps and it's EXACTLY!!! where it shows - just stop along the road, where everything looks the same which I found funny at first, go through one of the pathways through the bushes and literally within a minute or two you will be facing the ocean and be present at La Douche!

    During our visit a gentleman with his kids was enjoying the bath in the actual natural swimming pool and was super cool to see how everyone was enjoying it - it almost felt like a rollercoaster experience, you know it's scary and crazy but somehow you feel "everything is under control..." somewhat here as well... but if you do end up in that natural pool do exercise caution - it is mother nature you will be facing after all... powerful and unpredictable!

    TIP: again, I want to emphasize follow the Google Maps marker for La Douche - and stop as soon as you come to it on the map guided by the GPS signal - I told someone and they missed it where I know for fact it was correct because a day before we did it

    We arrived a bit early. We walked around and took some pictures.

    We were asked to park our cars on the other side of their house.

    The lady of the house gave us a drink. We asked something with no alcohol.

    Then she showed us all the fruits that can be seen in Guadeloupe. She gave slices for all the fruits. These were mostly delicious.

    Then we went to the history of this plantation. It was a place for sugar canes.

    They were building a tower, as it was in the past.

    We were invited to go on the house. It was splendid and lots of artifacts from the past.

    It was worthwhile to learn the history of this place.

    Worthwhile to see!
