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.

How can you not go the "tip" of Grand Terre? It is the perfect place to sit and admire nature. We watched the sunset and enjoyed sorbet and peanuts sold by street vendors. We saw many folks hiking at a distance so I assume there is a trail or hill of sorts.

Parking is located along the sides of the road leading up to Pointe des Chateaux, and the main viewpoint is just past the round-a-bout. There are several souvenir vendors and snack purveyors located here, too. Continue to the right, past the rocky... More

This location is extremely picturesque with a panoramic view from the summit. There's a nice little rocky shoreline and a short hike up the cliff to the overlook. Good for people of all ages, provided you wear good shoes. I was in flip flops, so it made things a bit harder, but it can be done.

Dramatic views of waves crashing into craggy coast. Also some good snorkeling on the north about a half mile or so before the parking at the end.

We visited mid morning during the week. We easily got a parking spot and enjoyed an hour or so hiking to the top and enjoying the view. Easy hike. Also enjoyed coconut sorbet that others on TA mentioned. Bottomline: worth a visit if you are in the general area, but wouldn't cross the Island or drive a couple of hours... More
