Guadeloupe Things to Do: 121 reviews and 322 photos
No matter how great the beaches are on Les Saintes, and how interesting the old Fort Napoléon on Terre-de-Haut is; the best thing about the islands simply is the impressive landscape you see everywhere. The whole coastline of the biggest island Terre-de-Haut is a collection of beautiful bays of which you have a very good view when you're driving around on one of the high roads crossing the island.
The most famous of all is the bay of the village (Anse du Bourg) where the picturesque village Terre-de-Haut brings colour to the landscape. But just west from here, when you climb to the viewpoint "Tête Rouge La Batterie", you have a great view of the other side of the bay as well, and of the îlet à Cabrit in front of you.
Other great places are the bay of "Pain de Sucre" (sugarbread) where you can find a quiet beach and an impressive, extraordinairily shaped rockformation that probably looks like a piece of bread. When you're visiting Fort Napoléon you should also have a look to the east to the great hidden Baie du Marigot where the water has an almost perfect turqoise colour. And last but not least the Baie de Pompierre, where you can also find a nice beach, is a great bay that is almost completely closed from open sea.
But the nice thing is: probably, while you're driving around here, you'll find a lot of other great views without even looking for them!
Address: Bays, all around Terre-de-Haut
