Chapel Beach

Beach - Anse-Bertrand

This magnificent stretch of yellow-sand beach protected by a coral barrier reef is an excellent place to swim and take a few minutes’ rest in the shade of coconut palms and raisiner (“seagrape”) trees.  The beach owes its name to the chapel that used to occupy this site. Hikers will find the Plate Point trailhead here. The beach has also been the site of archaeological digs that have uncovered some of the oldest burial sites in Guadeloupe. Chapel Beach is one of Guadeloupe’s most popular places for water sports. Surfing competitions are held here regularly. The reef break is influenced by north or (rarely) northwest swells. It has two wave patterns, one right/left on the right, accessible to all (many surfing lessons are given here), and a left on the surface of the coral reef, often tubular, reserved for advanced surfers only. Enter and exit easily from the reef or a sandy cove located to the right. Please note:  left/right currents can be very strong. Showers, parking lot, restaurants, snacks, and picnic tables; ideal for family outings.
