Beaches in Guadeloupe: the quest for the perfect beach in Basse-Terre
The first creole people here were too busy with the sugarcane harvest, not with naming places.
Interestingly, two of the most beautiful spots on Basse-Terre are named the same way, Grande Anse.
The one by Capesterre, Trois Rivieres, has black sands, we are close to a volcano after all, and the last mountain slopes right behind the beach are unforgettable.
The burgeoning nature of Basse-Terre makes the other Grande Anse beach on the opposite side of the island, by Deshaies,
a remarkable place to swim and enjoy the big wave that makes kids and adults scream alike when pushed to the shore.
The northern Cluny was the closest I got to my idea of Caribbean paradise,
very few people, palm trees and a breathtaking view on the big waves of the Caribbean Sea. Amazing.
