The Souffleur Beach is considered one of the best on the Guadeloupe islands due to its lagoon, beautiful colors, warm waters and the lower number of tourists. Even as I discovered it with big threatening clouds, it was one of my favorite.

Sand & Swimming at Souffleur Beach
As you can see in the pictures below the beach is very long with beautiful white sand and turquoise water (even if because of the clouds, it is not as bright as it could be here). The water is warm and the quiet, very enjoyable for swimming. I did not go snorkelling but the reviews indicate many spots where you can see plenty of fishes.
All along the beach you will find trees providing much needed shade.
The Waves at Souffleur beach
The weather was not all beautiful on that day so there were some very small waves. I really enjoyed them as they were making interesting shapes when reaching the sand.
And it seems to be a good spot for paddle boarding...
