Being English I am not used to the intense sun. You really need a parasol. Great bar at end of point. The lagoon is amazing and warm. Great snorkelling. Make sure you walk up to the cross, great view.

We went toward sunset and the colors were unbelievable. However, it meant a drive back in the dark (to Point a Pitre) which wasn't so fun. It would be much easier if you were only driving back to St Francois, or even Sainte... More
