East of Pointe-a-Pietre off the east coast of Grande-Terre, the snorkeling at La Desirade Beach is the best dive site on Ilet Desirade. There is a fringing coral reef that protects the beach from early morning surf before the wind kicks up. The waters are known for their clarity and diverse marine life. The La Desirade Beach is located about 14 miles east of Saint-Francois.

To reach the snorkeling in Guadeloupe by air, you will need to fly into Pointe-a-Pitre International Airport (PTP).

In addition, there is a ferry called L'Express de Iles that interconnects Dominica, Guadeloupe, Martinique and St Lucia.

Overall, La Desirade Beach is the 5th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 5 snorkeling dives in Guadeloupe.
