Pointe des Châteaux's striking cliff formations define Grande-Terre's easternmost edge, marking where the Atlantic Ocean collides with the Caribbean Sea. You'll notice a cluster of hollowed limestone coves, sculpted over time by turbulent winds and rough waves. Once you've hiked to the top to admire the eye-catching cliffs, retreat to Pointe des Châteaux's small beach or visit one of the sandy stretches lining the island's southern shoreline. Plage Tarare is another popular sunning spot for those who like sporting minimal swimwear and sprawling across heaps of white sand. You'll find Plage Tarare on Pointe des Châteaux's northern side.
Recent travelers highlight Pointe des Châteaux's dramatic scenery. "The drive out to the point was lovely and we found Pointe des Châteaux easily. Although we did not swim in lovely beaches, we did admire the rugged seashore," comments one TripAdvisor user.
You can reach Pointe des Châteaux by driving south along N5 from St-François. Along the way, you'll pass Le Moule, a 17th-century coastal destination that once attracted sailors and sugar cane seekers. If you have some spare time, Le Moule is worth exploring.
