What to expect

The east wing of the butterfly island, la Grande-Terre is a limestone plateau surrounded by coral reef. Its surface is a series of rolling hills(les Grands Fonds), white sand beaches and cliffs.

The tour starts at 8.30am in the heart of Sainte-Anne. Its fine-sand, quiet waters beach and its market is a delight for visitors and locals.

Before noon, we'll drive further east to La Maison De La Noix De Coco (The coconut house). It is a craft museum located on the way to La Pointe des Chateaux and is a well noted for manufacture and sale of craft items produced by over 25 artisans from Guadeloupe. The crafts are made from natural material such as seeds, coconut, wood, calabash, leather and palm. A vast amount of crafted items are on sale, such as, jewelry, art, sculpture, household items, souvenirs, picture frames...

We'll then make a quick stop for a photo souvenir at La Douche, this jet of sea water that pours into a natural pool of fine white sand.

After lunch, we'll drive to La Pointe des Châteaux, a protected peninsula reaching far within the Atlantic ocean and famous for the wild beauty of its scenery reminiscent of Brittany. This sea spray-kissed land, which takes its name from the shape of its rocks, can be explored along a steep trail that begins near the beautiful beach of Anse des Châteaux. You'll take a nice walk of about 1 hour to admire preserved flora and extraordinary landscapes, especially from the top of the headland adorned with a cross and two orientation tables. From there, enjoy an exceptional view of the island of Grande-Terre, the rocks of the Castles Headland, the Atlantic Ocean and the island of Désirade in the distance!
