Guadeloupe’s distinctive butterfly shape is bisected by a narrow channel called the Salt River, which divides the island in half. On the southeastern wing (Grand-Terre) lies Pointe-à-Pitre, the island’s largest city and its center of tourism. To the west is Basse-Terre, which is less developed and is home to a large national park.


In addition to lush sugarcane fields and amazing rainforests, where you can see many rare tropical birds and animals, Guadeloupe’s offshore treasures — colorful coral forests and abundant marine life — will captivate both snorkelers and divers.


Popular attractions:

  • Visit the beautiful Crayfish waterfall and linger for a dip in its cool, refreshing pools.
  • Head south of Basse-Terre to reach the dramatic, 350-foot Carbet Waterfalls.
  • Discover the world-renown Jacques Cousteau Underwater Reserve, near Pigeon Island.
  • Hike to Soufrière’s (an active volcano) summit — an exercise for hardy and intrepid adventurers.
  • Sail to one of the smaller nearby islands, including Petite Terre, La Désirade, Les Saintes and Marie Galante.


Though Columbus discovered Guadeloupe in 1493, the island belongs to France. So food is a high priority here. Fresh produce is available at the local markets (a boon to your provisioning efforts). And the fusion of French and Creole influences creates a delicious blended cuisine that is not to be missed.


Prevailing trade winds blow northeast during high season (Oct.–June), with calmer seas on the leeward side of the island, make Guadeloupe a first-class sailing destination.
