“Guadeloupe offers world-class hiking, superb beaches, some of the Caribbean´s best diving, and a selction of remote and virtually pristine islands. Guadeloupe is a fascinating archipelago of islands, with each island offering travelers something different while retaining its rich Franco-Caribbean culture and identity.
Guadeloupe´s two main islands look like the wings of a butterfly and are joined together by a mangrove swamp. Grande-Terre, the eastern of the two islands, has a string of beach towns that offer visitors marvelous stretches of sand to laze on and plenty of activities, while mountainous Basse-Terre, the western of the two, is home to the wonderful Guadeloupe National Park, which is crowned by the spectacular La Soufrière volcano.
South of the `mainland´ of Guadeloupe are a number of small islands that give a taste of Guadeloupe´s yesteryear. Ranging from sheer relaxation on La Désirade to the charmingly village-like atmosphere of Les Saintes, the smaller islands each have their own character and round out the long list of ingredients that make Guadeloupe such a unique destination.”
