White sand beaches, turquoise water and coconut palms… OVERRATED. To be original in the insta-game, black sand is the new black. 3 essentials pieces of information before setting off on an expedition: Black sand is volcanic sand… so head to Basse-Terre Black sand… it burns!

The beaches of Guadeloupe
The beaches of Guadeloupe are very objectively the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean (what am I saying? in the WORLD!)
Whether you are looking for waves for surfing, a coral reef for snorkeling or a little paradise for chilling with the family… You will find what you are looking for among the 400 km of Guadeloupe beaches.
As beautiful as they are diverse
The white sand cliché, turquoise water and coconut palms, we have it everywhere: at the Bois-Jolan beach in Sainte-Anne, at the Raisins-Clairs beach in Saint-François, the Souffleur beach in Port-Louis…
But insiders appreciate the volcanic charm of Grande Anse Trois-Rivères beach and its black sand. Or the golden sands of Deshaies at La Perle.
The islands of Guadeloupe
And let’s not forget that we are talking about an archipelago: if you get tired (WTF?) of the panorama of Grande-Terre and Basse-Terre, head for La Désirade! On the menu, swimming at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean.
Or let’s board to Les Saintes for a picnic under the carbets of Pompierre beach.
But deep down, everyone knows that the most beautiful beaches in the whole world of Guadeloupe are on the island of Marie-Galante. And if you have the slightest doubt, it’s because you’ve never been to Anse Canot…
The advantage is also that they are often well equipped: it is rare that a beach does not have showers and parking. And lying on your towel to tan all day long is not something people do. So if it’s your thing, well, you’ll have room for it, and if not, you have all the room to install your camping chairs and your “dombré” casseroles.
