Pointe Noire

Pointe Noire

Pointe Noire takes its name from the volcanic and black rocks that are present on the commune. Pointe Noire was one of the least accessible cities in the Guadeloupe archipelago. The construction of the road between Deshaies and Pointe Noire then the famous "Route de la Traversée" allowed the town to no longer be isolated. Pointe Noire, city of craftsmen of wood, has a very important cultural heritage. Come and discover the history of wood, cocoa and ouassou (small freshwater shrimp).

Pointe Noire is ideal for lovers of gastronomy. Come and enjoy a coffee at the "Café Beauséjour", taste different chocolates at the "Maison du Cacao".

Visit also the unique Ouassous hatchery of the Caribbean at the Aquacole Park (table d'hôtes on Friday and Sunday).

"L'Habitation Côte Sous le Vent" allows you to discover the history of Guadeloupe. It is a pleasant place to visit as a family. L'Habitation has a Creole house, a woods and traditions space, a pirate space, a park, a playground for children and an animal space.

The sanctuary of "Notre Dame des Larmes", located on the banks of a river, has a beautiful open altar. The Virgin would have made an appearance there.

Pointe Noire also has a beautiful waterfall 10m high, the "Saut d'Acomat", very crowded weekend (5 minutes walk).
