The beautiful waters of Raisins Clairs Beach
I arrived at this beach late afternoon. Not many people there. It was a very relaxing spot after discovering the south coast of Grande-Terre island.
As you can see in the pictures below, the water does not get deep too fast, it is clean and transparent and the waves are small.
The sand is incredibly white. what we call a postcard beach (or one withour palm trees)
I included it in my list with some of the best beaches in Guadeloupe.
Sunset at Raisins Clairs Beach
Raisins Clairs Beach was also a great place to enjoy sunset. It happens between 5:30pm and 6:30pm depending on the season, so early enough to admire it before going for drinks and diner.
