Guadeloupe Sights

Pompierre Bay

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 03/12/2015

Fodor's Review

This beach is particularly popular with families with small children, as there's a gradual slope, no drop-off, and a long stretch of shallow water. The calm water also makes for good snorkeling. The isles of Les Saintes offer outstanding snorkeling and scuba diving. On the other end of the island, the conditions are not as good as at Pain de Sucre, but the shouldered sandy bay is larger and there are a lot of fish. Saintois women may be at the entrance selling snacks and drinks. The curve of the beach is called the Bridge of Stone and you can walk it—carefully—taking a dip in the crater that fills with water from the Atlantic. Morning sun is best; then, return to Salako for some grilled fresh fish and a cold one. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: snorkeling; sunrise; swimming; walking.
