Creole Beach

There is a water sports center on-site, so Creole Beach's visitors can enjoy an array of activities in and on the surf, as well as traditional swimming and sunbathing. The Creole Beach Hotel bar provides tasty drinks to cool guests down on hot days.

Situated in the vicinity of Pointe A Pitre, 1.0 mile west of Gosier, Creole Beach is on the South West coast of Grande-Terre. You should consider dropping by regardless of whether you're staying nearby. The beaches found throughout Guadeloupe tend to be somewhat quiet, but Creole Beach stands out as a pleasant exception to this rule.

Amenities and Ambiance

Creole Beach features shallow water and is backed by the Creole Beach Hotel.

You'll also discover that there is a restaurant on the shore worth trying. There are several, unique dining options in Guadeloupe, but not every meal you enjoy has to be at a fine restaurant. Some vacationers simply sit on their towels——not in a restaurant——to enjoy lunch. Did you know that some hotels are happy to pack picnic lunches for their guests? Or, you could find just what you need from cafes and street vendors en route to the beach.

There is also a snack bar here. You might also have the option to try local specialties from one of the local vendors who operate at or near this spot.

Restrooms are available at Creole Beach. It's also good to know that you will have access to chairs and umbrellas, so guests seeking some respite from the sun will not be disappointed. You'll find the waters off-shore to be of good snorkeling quality, so bring your gear if you are looking to do some underwater exploration. Since Creole Beach is backed by the Creole Beach Hotel, most of its visitors are hotel guests.

Bear in mind that the area surrounding Creole Beach is a popular spot, meaning you may find quite a few people competing for the use of the same services.
