Beach of the Caravelle, Sainte-Anne, Grande-Terre, Guadeloupe

The beach of the Caravelle is a beach adjoining the Club Med in Guadeloupe and of course it is well maintained. But to get to it you have to go a long way by the beaches that are not maintained at all and sometimes it’s a bit difficult if you go with the kids or if you have difficulty walking on a completely irregular path. Once you arrive, you will feel that you are in a place like the beaches you see on the postcards. White sand beach, crystalline water, with plenty of trees to protect from the sun. You can not access to the Club Med but there is a beach bar that is accessible to everyone. There are several aquatic activities to do and it is okay if you go with children as there is not a big slope or big waves, it’s more like a natural pool.

Tips

There is no parking so you will have to leave the car at about a fifteen minute walk. You can also leave the car at Pointe-à-Pitre, take the ferry and walk.

If you do not like bugs, be careful as the iguanas walk between people and pass on your towel without any inconvenience.
