Guadeloupe

Guadalupa - Guadeloupe

 

Basse-Terre:  A untouched wildlife, exuberant with beautiful beaches, some just right of a picture post card, numerous sportive activities both on land and at sea. Beautiful dive sites and many places to visit, both historical and natural. Fundamentally a touristic destination. Deshaies a small fishing area is especially enjoyable with its many seafront restaurants.


Grande-Terre: The wildlife is a little less exuberant, but its local towns and villages are just wonderful. They are scattered along beautiful white sanded beaches and turquoise lagoons protected by coral reefs. Towards the north and the sugar cane fields the sun shines down and sparkles. Towards Pointe a Pitre modernisation is every present in Grande Terre, numerous restaurants and local night life spots towards the area of Gosier, Sainte Anne and Francois.

Desirade with its most interesting history, offers you a chance to holiday in tranquillity. It offers its tourists an oasis of peace, some beautiful beaches with breezy restaurants, some interesting historical points of interest and some nice evening walks at sunset. Ideal for those looking to relax and live the slower pace of a Caribbean fisherman.

 

Les Saintes

Les Saintes, Guadalupa - Guadeloupe

 

Les Saintes is often used as a day excursion point. People often like to tour its beautiful bay, which is the third most beautiful in the world. It is easy to visit due to its proximity to Basse-Terre.
For us it merits a few days to get to know its unique character, which has its own unique history. Many of its population remained isolated from mainland Guadeloupe up until just a few decades ago.
There are some interesting historical sites to visit. The beaches are not exceptional but its waters are crystal clear and the sea beds some of the most beautiful in Guadeloupe, a perfect spot for those looking to dive.
