Pointe de la Grande Vigie, Anse-Bertrand

#28 of 100 in Outdoors in Grande-Terre Island
Must see · Outdoor Activity
The Pointe de la Grande Vigie is the northernmost point of the island of Grande-Terre in Guadeloupe and, as such, is also the northernmost point of Guadeloupe as a whole.

Located about 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) northeast of Anse-Bertrand (the commune it is administratively attached to), this rocky peninsula with vertical limestone cliffs reaching up to 80 metres (260 ft) high is reminiscent of the French coasts of eastern Normandy and Brittany. Exposed to trade winds and sea spray, it has scanty and xerophytic vegetation, and it has been the site of almost no construction. Its coastal escarpment makes access by sea difficult.

In clear weather, the Pointe de la Grande Vigie offers impressive views of Grande-Terre's lowlands to the south and of the islands of Montserrat, 80 kilometres to the northwest; Antigua, 70 kilometres to the north; and La Désirade, 50 kilometres to the southeast.

  • When I entered, I found out that it was free. We hiked a bit and then we saw the beautiful cliffs. We could not come close to it, as it was on the other side of the ocean. There were many cliffs...  more »
  • Nice view from here. But not much to do other than walk around the park area.
  • Beautiful views. The path is quite short, but don't forget your water bottle, it's really hot.
