Tropical exile on two wheels

The right wing of the butterfly-shaped archipelago will be your playground, and Saint-François, your pied-à-terre, from which you will go exploring every day on your bicycle. Grande-Terre is essentially a plain dominated by small hills - called mornes -, the highest of which reaches 177 m.

Saint-François, renowned for its beaches, is one of the tourist centers of Guadeloupe, but much quieter than Pointe-à-Pitre and Le Gosier. From there, you will travel through a good part of Grande-Terre on roads with little traffic. You will ride to the north and the Pointe des Châteaux to see its beautiful cliffs.

The sea is never far away and a French touch in your plate will complete this very popular scenery with cyclists. Add to that a day in Marie-Galante, where the ferry will take you from Saint-François, and you'll have wings! Then, thanks to the daily circuits organized in loops, you always have the possibility of taking a rest day to enjoy the beaches and the delicious cocktails offered at the hotel if your legs need a break!
