Visited here some time back and the views are spectacular. The sea is so clear and the cliffs facing the ocean are breathtaking. I so wish I could live here! I'd drop everything and go in a second.

Beautiful site well worth the hike to the top. The view will leave you speechless. It's peaceful to sit there and watch the waves crash.

Easily the most beautiful point in the entire Caribbean - at the easternmost tip of Guadeloupe. It's the perfect place to find someone to take your picture when on a honeymoon. You'll never forget that moment.

Great fairly easy hike, but wear decent shoes and bring plenty of water. Very clean stretch of beach and there are little stalls selling souvenirs and snacks.
