Pointe Noire

Pointe Noire

Located on the west coast of Basse-Terre, Pointe Noire takes its name from the volcanic rocks that dot the town. Once one of the least accessible towns in the Guadeloupean archipelago, it has seen its connectivity improved with the construction of the road between Deshaies and Pointe Noire, as well as the famous Route de la Traversée, putting an end to its isolation.

Pointe Noire, renowned for being the city of wood artisans, reveals a rich cultural heritage. Come explore the history of wood, cocoa and ouassou (crayfish) in the heart of this welcoming community.
