See the highlights of Grand-Terre on a drive that encircles the island, showcasing the dramatic shoreline and natural beauty of the Pointe de Chateaux, and appealing village of seaside Sainte Anne.

Depart from the pier and drive along the southern coast of the island of Grand-Terre, the easternmost “wing” of butterfly-shaped Guadeloupe. Before long, you will arrive in Sainte Anne, a seaside village renowned for its appealing Creole atmosphere. Although once the island’s largest producer of sugar cane, Sainte Anne has since diversified to become a center of island culture, especially around the waterfront Artists Village, where you may shop.

Continuing on, you will drive farther east, where the scenery seems to become more dramatic around every turn in the road. It all comes to a crescendo at La Pointe des Chateaux, an impossibly beautiful finger of land at the very eastern tip of Grand-Terre.

The most visited site on Guadeloupe, La Pointe des Chateaux offers an absolutely stunning view of the sea relentlessly pounding the rocky cliffs. Over time, the water has shaped the land into four castle-like towers, giving rise to the name “castle point.” From the bluff, the towers appear to be a single rock formation, but from the beach perspective they are clearly separate.

Next, it’s on to the inland village of Morne-a-l’Eau, where you will stop briefly for photos of the surrounding beauty before driving back to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 90-minutes of easy to moderate walking. There will be a 400 steps to negotiate to reach teh viewpoint at La Pointe des Chateaux. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned only to participate to the extent of their personal stamina and ability and may make arrangements with the guide to not participate in any guided walking portions of the tour. Light-weight clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; a bottle of water from the ship; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. The tour sequence may vary.
