Where to Drink in Guadeloupe
In Guadeloupe, drinks and meals go hand in hand, and not just as sundowners. Locals wash their appetizers down with a classic ti’ punch or perhaps a planteur rhum punch as an aperitif, while wine and fresh juices accompany heavier meals. As a result, restaurants double as excellent bars, each well-stocked with a variety of local and imported drinks.
Îlet du Gosier, Guadeloupe
Ti’ Robinson is your classic Caribbean driftwood beach bar, looking like it just washed up on shore yet serving the best cocktails around. But this bar packs even more in its punch, since it’s located on a small offshore islet. Easily reached by a five-minute boat ride from La Datcha Beach in Gosier, locals and tourists flock here to spend a day away from the mainland, swim in shallow waters, and enjoy fresh cocktails and local meals.
Bas Vent, Guadeloupe
Set along the beach at Langley Resort Fort Royal, Kawann Beach Bar is a chic but casual option for cocktails on the sand. Sample a local rhum mixed with fresh fruits and snack on pizza, sandwiches, and other bar bites all day and night until midnight.
