Saint-Claude is a French commune in the overseas department of Guadeloupe. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Domaine de Vanibel and Le Phare. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Plage de Grande Anse and Plage de Bananier. Change things up with these side-trips from Saint-Claude: Domaine de l'Habitation la Griveliere (in Vieux-Habitants) and Capesterre-Belle-Eau (Plantation Grand Cafe & Distillerie Longueteau). There's still lots to do: head outdoors with Grand Cul-de-Sac Marin, don't miss a visit to Fort Delgres, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedrale Notre Dame de la Guadeloupe, and enjoy the sea views from Anse a la Barque.

To find reviews, maps, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Saint-Claude road trip planning website.
