Pointe des Chateaux, Saint Francois

(4.7/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Pointe des Chateaux a centerpiece of your Saint Francois vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Saint Francois trip itinerary planner.

  • After all the nice beaches it was nice to see the wild cliffs. It was cool with the big waves and the wind. It's bice to walk around and discover the area.
  • It is very nice
  • One of my favorite places to visit I used to go there as a child with my father and my brother. I just went to visit it in August with my 11 year old daughter. I was in tears at the beauty of that place...
  • Things to do in the area are well to do. Be it the beach, covi ice cream, mount the tip from castles to the sunset.

  • Tip is of Grande Terre. The wind and waves breaking on the rocks: a pretty sight has admire by minimal attention. The tip is presented in guidebooks as "a piece of Brittany in Guadeloupe" because rather rocky and "torn"! :-)
