Pointe des Châteaux

Viewpoint in St-François

This long peninsula right at the eastern tip of Grande-Terre is a gorgeous stretch of landscape. With some good beaches on both sides, it's popular with locals who head here to escape the crowds in St-François. It's also enormously popular with cyclists who love the scenic flat road. The culmination of the peninsula is a cliff, topped with a giant cross, that looks towards La Désirade and offers spectacularly scenic views.
