This is the smallest of the three resorts of Grande-Terre. It runs along two major public beaches of white sand. One is found in the centre of town, the second is at the west entrance to Sainte-Anne. This is the beach of Caravelle, the most beautiful of Grande-Terre : lagoon and coconut trees, warm water and water sports are all here. The Club Med would not disappoint you : its deck chairs and umbrellas occupy a significant part of the area.

Sainte-Anne: what to do?

The trips that are most often offered are a mini-cruise for a whole day on a catamaran sailing to the island destination of the Saintes, Marie Galante, or the Gosier islet. On Grande-Terre : a one day trip to Pointe-à-Pitre through the mangrove, a day trip in 4X4 along the north coast, very wild, between sugar cane fields and old windmills. On Basse-Terre : one day in 4X4 on the theme of nature (rain forest, excursion to the foot of the Soufrière volcano, the Carbet waterfalls, bathing in a waterfall); a day by 4X4 (visit a rum distillery and a banana grove).
