Pointe des Chateaux, Saint Francois

(2,400+ reviews on the web)
Historic Walking Area
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.

  • Very pretty Spot, a must... the meeting of the Atlantic and the Caribbean sea currents... See

  • Very nice point of view. The end of the Guadeloupe shows us an impressive view of the sea from hitting these blocks of stones

  • We are little when the ocean carried by the winds go wild on this steep peak East of Guadeloupe. It's impressive and magical at the same time. 500 meters further a lolo installed these tables into the lagoon so that you can enjoy a drink on the water. For the lucky ones looking over the horizon you may be lucky to see some whales that breed in these waters
