Former Weather Station

Architecture - La Désirade

At the island’s far eastern point, a former meteorological station from the 1930s overlooks the ocean. This is Guadeloupe’s easternmost point, its furthest reach into the Atlantic Ocean. For this reason, it was a prime location for monitoring hurricanes bearing down on the archipelago, which took a hard hit from Hurricane Hugo in 1989. The weather station is now closed (access prohibited). The possibility of restoring and reopening it as an eco-museum is under study.
