Activity details

Réserve Cousteau

Your thoughtful and helpful hostess for the day will answer all of your questions with the generosity and good spirits that characterize her. The rendezvous is at 7:30 at your holiday resort. Departures are from Ste-Anne, St-François, Gosier, or Pointe à Pitre..

For departures from Saint-François and Sainte-Anne, the circuit starts with a breathtaking crossing of the Grand Fonds, a succession of little mountains each as impressive as the next.

Guide et Navette

Once you arrive at Pointe à Pitre, you will cross the rivière salée and will go on the left wing of the butterfly to go up to Sainte-Rose. When you get there, you will stop at the fishing harbor, making your first foray into Basse Terre. Before going to Deshaies, you will overlook one of the most beautiful beaches in Guadeloupe: Easy on the eyes! Get your cameras out! Breathtaking view of the splendid Baie de Grande Anse.

There are renowned luxury hotels nearby in the vegetation, and for good reason! You will visit the Botanical Garden, formerly owned by Coluche, just nearby. Easy on the eyes here, as well! Greater flamingoes and parrots and many other wonders (15.50€/person entry fee).

Cascade aux écrevisses

After eating your sandwich or full meal at a restaurant in Pointe-Noire (20€/person – wine included), you will go to Bouillante to get on the glass-bottomed boat to discover the Cousteau Reserve and bathe there (19€/person for a 1h30 visit). Like the other paying activities, the glass-bottomed boat tour is optional, you can also choose to go snorkeling (fins, mask, and snorkel provided) in the company of the turtles that stay near the beach.

On the la route de la traversée, you will make your last stop at the wonderful Cascade aux Écrevisses, where you can refresh and “desalinate” yourselves by bathing in emerald green water. You will go back to your starting point at 18:00.

You will be curious when you arrive in the morning, but you will be in love with Basse Terre, its lush forest, its beaches, and its inhabitants when you leave in the evening.
