Calm waist high protected waters, beautiful views of Basse Terre s mountainous southern tip and beautiful people everywhere. Enough English is spoken to get by even if you don't speak French. If you get hungry here, try the mussels and fries. Fantastique !

This beach is the most popular beach for tourists in Guadeloupe.... not necessarily the best. It's crowded, noisy and busy.

The best beach on the island, the shops are about a 30meter walk where you can grab a drink of any kind, and walk it back to your spot on the beach! Crystal clear and gorgeous!

St Anne Beach is a fun little visit. Check out some of the small stalls and food huts along the shore.

Many of the beaches in Guadeloupe have many submerged rocks and coral, not the case here. Ongoing kite surfing competition was a blast to watch.
