Very nice beach. Facilities and parking. It is great for families and just off the main road. I would not recommend it in the middle of the day, unless you are lucky enough to snag a spot under one of the trees, as the sun...More

Easy to find just before you get to St Francois. Good swimming. Snorkeling not great. Restaurant quite good. Food trucks looked enticing also.

We visited several beaches on our visit. We stopped by here to enjoy the lunch trucks and the activity. The beach itself is not ideal...crowded, sea weed. Enjoy the surf elsewhere on the island, but for a fun lunch this is good.

this beach was a short 5-minute drive from where my boyfriend and I were staying (about a 25 minute walk), and after exploring all of Grande-Terre and Basse-Terre, this was by far our favorite beach. gorgeous clear turquoise water, powder white sand, and never crowded....More

The Plage des Raisins Clairs was, for us, just a stone's throw from our apartment rental. We walked to the beach daily. Easy access into the water (not true for other parts of the nearby beaches which are pure rocks to the water edge). There...More

Super place for swimming and it has a restaurant right on the beach. parking, like every good beach in Guadeloupe, is tough.

This beach was perfect. Easy parking, beautiful water, calm seas, soft sand, with plenty of space to spread your towel. Seemed to be popular with tourists as well as locals and very close to Saint Francois.

All in all, a very nice beach. Lots of space and shade although it does seem to get quite crowded (not St. Anne's type crowded but crowded nonetheless). Food trucks are quite good for lunch too.

Where can we buy beach chairs for the beaches?

Response from Nancee0 | Reviewed this property |
Sorry, we did not need chairs at the beach, so, I am unsure. If I remember correctly, there is a small information booth in the parking lot just North of the beach. They might be able to help, or, just ask any of the... More
