The Wild Beauty of Pointe des Châteaux, Guadeloupe

Favorite Foto Friday

Pointe des Châteaux (Castles Headland) — where the Atlantic Ocean collides with the Caribbean Sea on the far easternmost edge of the island of Grande Terre in the Guadeloupe Islands, French West Indes.  These incredible rock formations were formed over time by erosion and turbulent waves.

The Pointe is reached by driving east along the D118 from the village of St. François.  The drive is lovely and the scenery is stunning.  There are hiking trails and a viewpoint with a 10-meter high cross (zoom to see in the foto).
