One of the most convenient options is Anse Champagne.

While the resort that once controlled access to the beach has since closed, Anse Champagne is still as popular as ever. Visitors can drive right up to the beach and explore not only the sand and waters of the beach, but some of the abandoned property that still stands, including a dock that is missing a few boards. You can spend as much time as you want at this coastal site, considering it has bathrooms on-site for your convenience.
If you're looking for a beach where you can have a private family outing away from the crowds, Anse Loquet may be just what you're looking for. As one of the first beaches on Guadeloupe's Southeast Point, Anse Loquet is once of the more visited, especially since amenities are much more scarce as you head further into the point. Visitors who do choose Anse Locquet will be rewarded with the calm southern water mixed with soft sand; making this beach one of the last calm and clear water beaches on the point before they start becoming rough and choppy. It can be found a mile and a half east of these accommodations.
Stopping by a community or town near your villa complex can add a little something extra to your vacation, no matter if you'll just be browsing their markets, or learning more about the area's art and history.
