Why visit Guadeloupe

The island of Guadeloupe is actually the ISLANDS; seeing as it is made up of the two main islands (Basse Terre and Grand Terre) as well as the tiny islands of Marie-Galante,  La Desirade and Iles de Saintes. The islands are a department of France and as such are part of the European Union. If you’re looking for the perfect blend of African and French culture then this is  Why you must visit Guadeloupe.

Guadeloupe National Park

Located on the island of Basse-Terre, the national park includes tropical rainforest, mangrove and coastal rainforest. Due to excessive hunting, the animal life is limited but the waterfalls and dramatic landscape more than make up for it.

Terre De Bas Island

If you are looking to avoid crowded beaches them Grand-Anse is for you; it is arguably one of the best beaches in Guadeloupe and if you feel like a bit of history then visit the last known Salako (a traditional hat peculiar to the Saintes) makers.

Pays de la Canne

Visit this refurbished sugar plant that is now a center for technical and industrial culture that features an educational theme park where you can learn about the history of sugar in the region.
