Roads are generally well-maintained in Guadeloupe, except for some isolated paths. An economic car such as *Renault Clio* will be perfect if you travel alone or if you are 2 passengers. Should you come with your family, a Dacia Duster or Renault Captur will better match your needs. We recommend you to choose a diesel car. Even though the roads are easier in Grande-Terre than in Basse-Terre, there still are hills that can be steep.
If you know how to drive in France, it is the same rules in Guadeloupe as it is a French Territory. The maximum authorized speed limit is 110km/h on some parts of the road. There are no toll and roads are well-maintained. Be careful and respect speed limits. There are many speed cameras on the roads. Also, note that during rush hours, traffic can be crazy between Gosier and Saint-François, and around Jarry.
Gas prices change every month and are the same on the entire island. In June 2021, : - Diesel : 1,36€/L - Unleaded Petrol : 1,64€/L
Sainte-Anne was named after Anne d'Autriche, mother of the French King : Louis XIV. At this time, the city was a big commercial center for sugar and rhum export. After the sugar crises, the tourism was the only economic source of the city. That is when they started to build seaside resorts around the city.
After a great hike or a nice waterfall in Guadeloupe, there is nothing better than resting on a beautiful beach. Sainte-Anne is famous for having several of the most beautiful beaches of Guadeloupe :
Caravelle Beach (in Front of Club Med)
Gros Sable Beach
White Sand, Crystal Clear waters, Corals, Coconut trees, lagoons... take the time to visit them with your rental car.
Not so far from Sainte-Anne, you will find le Pointe des Châteaux, an unmissable thing to do in Guadeloupe with the breathtaking view of La Désirade. After taking a few pictures, go rest on the Shower Beach. You'll understand why it is named like this.
You will also find many restaurants and local markets where you can buy fresh fish.
