INFO & PLANNING TIPS - Pointe de la Grande Vigie
The Grande Vigie Headland is the northernmost point of Guadeloupe where you can observe beautiful cliffs that may remind some of Normandy. Some of the limestone cliffs reach up to 80 meters (260ft) high.
In clear weather, the Grande Vigie headland offers views of Grande-Terre's lowlands to the south and of the islands of Montserrat, Antigua, and La Désirade.
However I would not recommend the drive just to see that. It is a good stop if you are touring the Grande Terre island or already going to the incredible Hell Gate.

View from Pointe de la Vigie
Although it was beautiful, the weather and the fact that I grew up in Normandy made this place not so WOW as others in Guadeloupe.
