Destination Information for Guadeloupe
Shaped like a butterfly, Guadeloupe is a French overseas territory, situated in the southern Caribbean Sea. Its two largest islands– Grande-Terre Island and Basse-Terre Island– are separated by the Salée River. The former has a string of idyllic beaches and fields of sugar cane further inland, making it a perfect destination for a holiday geared around relaxation. The mountainous Basse-Terre Island is appealing for its natural beauty, as Parc National de la Guadeloupe contains some stunning scenery. At its heart is the active La Soufrière volcano, which towers above the rest of the island at a height of 1467 metres.
Guadeloupe’s smaller islands have their own appeal, with many of these remaining largely untouched by tourists. Diving and snorkelling are popular on Pigeon Island, where tall hills and sandy beaches create a perfect backdrop for exploration. Other hidden gems are the islands of Les Saintes, Marie-Galante and La Désirade.
