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.

  • Amazing views. Photos don’t do this place any justice. I’m so glad we rented a car. I can’t imagine trying to take a bus here. The waves are very strong here so I wouldn’t suggest swimming.
  • Amazing view. It is a must in Guadeloupe!
  • We didn’t rent a car. Took a bus from the small airport. Asked the diver what time the next bus will come. We really enjoyed the view. It was spectacular Waiting for 1 H for the bus. Never showed up. We walked 3H back to st.Francois marina. In the heat. Almost passed out. Overall: lesson learnt
