Our first exloration was the Eastern-most tip of the Island. This is an incredible spit of land called Pointe des Châteaux. A road leads all the way out to a headland which has incredible views, including the island of La Désirade, which is about 5 miles offshore. The views are well worth the hike to top. And sure enough the beaches all along the peninsula are just unreal. There are many small beaches and again we saw several where the waves were breaking a short distance off shore, creating small protected coves ideal for swimming.
