This is a very popular beach but if you get a sot under the trees it can feel like you are the only ones there. A perfect spot to set up a grill and have some fresh fish, listening to music and having a couple...More

Plage de Bois Jolan was our favorite of the wonderful beaches of Guadeloupe. Soft white sand, a view that stretches the length of the island, enough shade if you need it and a laud back vibe. It doesn't have the food trucks that other Guadeloupe...More
