The pointe de la Grande Vigie The islands of Guadeloupe

Discover The pointe de la Grande Vigie

In the extreme north of Grande-Terre, the pointe de la Grande-Vigie is formed by steep cliffs. About 262 ft high, the cliffs are just rocks where the waves and the surprising exotic vegetation, composed of thorny scrubland and scented plants crash together. Trails criss-cross Grande Vigie. From certain cliffs, you can sometimes see when the weather is nice Antigua and Montserrat Islands, 43 and 50 miles away.

To get to the point itself and admire the view you will need to walk for a few minutes to get to the right spot.

Up above the viewing point stands a rather charmless cross, at the foot of which you'll find a collection of candles have been arranged.

It might look very appealing but don't try to go for a dip here, as there are many dangerous currents in this area.

The views are breathtaking and despite their fairly even altitude the summits still have names.
