Anse-Bertrand is the northernmost village of Grande-Terre and Guadeloupe as a whole. Until not so long ago it has been very separated from the rest of the island, being an only agricultural place. For this reason you shouldn?t expect any impressive buildings here; in fact the village is not spectacular at all.

But what ís worthwhile in Anse-Bertrand are its beaches that are very popular. Because here you?re very close to real, open sea the water is pretty rough almost all the time, which makes it a perfect place for surfing. Even when the weather is very bad, the beaches therefore are often visited, because the waves are still good. In 2008 the French National Surfing Championships were held here in Anse-Bertrand, at the beach called la Plage de la Chapelle.

But not only for surfers the beaches are good here: also if you just want to get tanned or relax on the beach you are at the right place here. There are also some places where the sea is much calmer and where the swimming is good.

Address: Anse-Bertrand
