Capesterre-de-Marie-Galante is normally just called Capesterre, but because there is a town with the same name on Basse-Terre, the official name is a bit longer. This town is the third biggest of the island, and it is located in the south-east, at the end of the beautiful route N9 that crosses this island from Grand-Bourg.

The town is surrounded by several naturally beautiful areas. In the southwest you’ll find the breathtaking beauty of the Plage de la Feuillère with its incredibly blue sea, almost white sand and tall palmtrees. In the northeast you’ll find the rough area of Les Galets, and in the north you’ll enter the beautiful inlands of “MG”.

The centre of Caresterre is very peacefull and picturesque. The bright church is surrounded by houses of the same bright material, the roads are all one-way traffic and at the waterside you’ll find a small fishermen’s harbour. At 2 kilometres outside the centre you’ll find the nice hotel Touloulou.

Address: Capesterre, Mare-Galante
