Pointe des Chateaux, Saint Francois

(2,600+ reviews on the web)
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. 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.

  • Being English I am not used to the intense sun. You really need a parasol. Great bar at end of point. The lagoon is amazing and warm. Great snorkelling. Make sure you walk up to the cross, great view.  more »
