Pointe des Chateaux, Saint Francois

4.8
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.

  • Arriving at the peak of the castles is like in Britain. I went there several times and for me this site is beautiful. Guadeloupe has some lovely walks to do.

  • Beautiful! Closer to nature you can enjoy the view, the beach or walks in the surrounding area. In the parking lot you can cool thanks to the coconut sorbet ;) To do it without hesitation!
