Holiday To Guadeloupe

Our Top 5 Reasons To Visit Guadeloupe:

1. Gorgeous and diverse islands

There are 6 inhabited islands. Base-Terre and Grand-Terre are the two main islands joined together by bridges. Their shape resembles a butterfly hence Guadeloupe is often called ‘Butterfly Island.’ Other islands include Iles des Saintes, La Desirade and Marie Galante.

BASE-TERRE has the National Park of Guadeloupe, beautiful waterfalls, natural springs, banana fields, mountains, rainforest and la Soufriere active volcano. Standing proud at 1467 metres, it’s a 1 and half hour walk up, with tremendous views. Take a dip in the pool below Cascade aux Ecrevisses waterfall.

GRAND-TERRE is more sheltered and good for swimming and sailing with a variety of beach towns.  Take a short ferry to ILES DES SAINTES and its attractive harbour Terre-de-Haut, spectacular beaches and historical sites.

Tranquil LA DESIRADE, a former leper colony, offers deserted beaches, perfect to swim and snorkel from. Go back in time to authentic MARIE-GALANTE with its sensational beaches.

2.Outdoor activities

Swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving are all superb. The best area for diving is near Pigeon Island. Jet skiing, windsurfing, waterskiing, canoeing, sailing, paragliding and kayaking are all available, with surfing off the north coast of Grand-Terre. Hiking and cycling are popular land activities.

5. History and Culture

The ACTe memorial centre on Grand-Terre which opened in 2015, focuses on the history of slavery in the Caribbean.

Music has a long history on Guadeloupe. Traditional Gwoka drum music, with its roots in slavery, can be heard in carnivals today accompanied by rhythmic and colourful Beguine dance.

Pick up a souvenir or local produce in the markets, such as the one at Sainte- Anne.
