Welcome to St-François
All this doesn't disbar the less financially fluid from visiting, but if the resorts of Gosier aren't your thing then St-François is a good alternative. There's a wide range of water sports on offer, from surfing and diving to kitesurfing and kayaking. St-François is also a major jumping-off point for trips to Guadeloupe’s smaller islands, and there are services to all of them from here.
Just beyond St-François is windswept Pointe des Châteaux. This gorgeous peninsula boasts limestone cliffs pounded by crashing waves, some wonderful beaches and views of La Désirade. All in all, St-François should not be missed.
