Plage de Bois Jolan was our favorite of the wonderful beaches of Guadeloupe. Soft white sand, a view that stretches the length of the island, enough shade if you need it and a laud back vibe. It doesn't have the food trucks that other Guadeloupe...More

Just a few KM past Saint Anne is Plage de Bois Jolan - boasting plenty of parking and a rockier/shallow beach perfect for snorkeling. Bring your picnic here because there are no amenities and shops - this was my favorite beach. From the right spot...More
