Not sure what else to say. This place is breathtaking whether you are walking out to the ocean on the lava rocks or the sandy beach or hiking the trails to the cross or around the point the views and colors of the air and water are truly spectacular. Everyone that I sent pics to thought I had photo shopped... More

Amazing ocean view and crashing waves. Take sunscreen as the ocean spray causing you to burn easily.

The view is absolutely amazing. I recommend to visit early before the huge amounts of other visitors arrive. I was there 6.30 am watching the beautifull sunrise. There was only few other people at the same time. Even the access to the top is quite easy it is good to know that there are 150 steps on the stairways, on... More

Our large group spent 2-3 hours here at the beginning of our trip. Really lovely views from the hill overlooking Anse a a Gourde to the left, or of course up on the top of the cliff of Pointe des Chateaux with the cross. The hike up took about 10 minutes and most of us did this with flip flops... More

A must-dp when in the island. The hike along the beach took a few hours and was very impressive. Windy and pleasant, not strenuous. The Pointe des Chateaux itself gives you the view of the entire island from atop. There are places to grab drinks and snacks nearby as well, which helped after the walk :D

It's certainly worth to take the car and drive to the eastest point at Guadeloupe...and it is an easy walk up to the cross - where you really get the view over all BEAUTIFUL Guadeloupe and all the island Desirade, Marie Galante, Les Saintes , Petite Terre and also all the way to the vulcano Sourfirer at the island Basse...

Pointe des Chateau is situated at the end of a peninsula to the east of Saint Francois. It's well worth the drive as there are great views along the coastline in both directions. There is an easy walk down to the beach, beautiful sand , and a reasonable climb up steps to reach the cross on the cliff top. We... More

A stop at Pointe des Chateaux was definitely a highlight of our trip. Bring your camera because you are going to get some great shots of waves crashing against rock. The hill with the cross seen at a distance made for a spectacular backdrop as well. It is hard not to feel the power of nature / spirit here.

Words can't describe how beautiful this spot is. Huge waves breaking over rocks on a promotory at the tip of the island. Vendors selling crafts, and a lady set up to sell really tasty coconut ice cream. If you are in Guadalupe, this is a must stop!!

Really great views from the very end of the island. Was really crowded when we were there in January. Walked up to the cross for the 360 degree view. A definite worthwhile stop if you're in the St. Francois area.
