Welcome to Gosier

Just 8km from Pointe-à-Pitre, Gosier is the biggest tourist spot in Guadeloupe. The hotels are packed close together and share a series of scalloped soft-sand coves, which make it an obvious spot for a family beach holiday.

The town center, about 1km away from hotel central, feels a little run-down and lacks the fine beaches found in the main hotel area, but it is more local in character. It also has a small but attractive beach and a good view across the water to Îlet du Gosier.
