Although this is a very busy place on a weekend the hike was pleasant and most were courteous to share the narrow path. I would call it a rubbly walk more than a hike, no steep steps or climbing that required hands assistance. Very nice...More

There is a reason why parking can be an issue (even though we went on a Sunday afternoon and got a spot fairly easily), the view is beautiful. Nice little hike and you could walk for a while if you want to. View of the...More

A delight to see the power of the ocean on the very eastern part of the island. The walk up to the cross aloud for a wonderful view. A must see.

Pointe des Chateaux is the very eastern tip of the island. We arrived in cloud-shrouded skies and a bit of a tropical rain but within minutes the skies had cleared, leaving breath-taking views. Kite-boarding was plentiful to watch along the lagoons. Well worth the trek...More

There is a nice hike to the top of the cross that gives a great view of the water. However, even standing on the beach or on the rocks near the beach, the view is spectacular.

This was our first stop when we visited Guadeloupe and it was worth the 45 minute drive from Gosier! We actually decided to go a second time at the end of our trip. The rocky cost was gorgeous and the walk up to the point...More

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
