Pointe de la Grande Vigie


(The Point of the Great Views)

The Pointe de la Grande Vigie is the northernmost place on Grande Terre, jutting into the Atlantic Ocean. It offers tremendous views of surrounding cliff sides, including the Pointe du Capuchin, pictured above, and the Pointe Petite Tortue. The bluff at the Pointe de la Grande Vigie is quite high, which means that a visitor looks down upon the cliffs below.

It is easy to reach the Pointe, as a road leads almost all the way to the tip. A short walk to the tip is recommended to obtain a better view of the Pointe Petite Tortue as well as neighboring islands on the horizon. The D122 leads to the Pointe from Anse-Bertrand.

The Porte d'Enfer is a short drive away, as is the notable restaurant Chateau de Feuilles (lunch only) in Campeche.
