Welcome to the town of Saint-François, located southeast of Grande-Terre. This coastal town is a popular destination for boaters and visitors who like to enjoy the many white sand beaches and seaside restaurants.

La pointe des chateaux is a well- known place and to place to go in Guadeloupe. This community is also one of the starting points to the Désirade Islands, Marie-Galante or Petite Terre through its ferry terminal.

You will find in its village a  weekly covered market (local and artisanal products) and restaurants by the sea. In terms of services, there are a post office, distributors, many shops and a gas station located at the entrance of the village.

This territory takes advantage of its attractive environment to invite you to discover these many beaches and unvoidable places on and near this territory (islands).

 

The beach of Raisins Clairs is a large white sand beach on the Atlantic side, its turquoise waters and coconut trees will allow you to rest in the best conditions. Finally, a restaurant is located on the beach and local boui boui are located on the parking lot so you can have lunch and refresh yourself (sorbets, …).

The sea is not agitated but the beach is not monitored (be careful).

Itinerary

 

To reach the beach, from Pointe-à-Pitre, join the N1 expressway towards Le Gosier. You will join the N4 road which will take you along the South coast of Grande-Terre. You will cross the town of Sainte-Anne and a little before the village of Saint-François, you will see on your right the beach of Raisins Clairs. The beach is quite large and located on both sides of the grape cemetery.

Park on one of the car parks.

You have two large and spacious parking lots and a smaller one after the cemetery. You will not have any problem finding a place to park and the beach is easily accessible from these car parks.
