Guadeloupe

About Guadeloupe

Guadeloupe is an insular region of France Located in the Caribbean sea between Dominica and Antigua.
Guadeloupe is a French archipelago composed of 5 islands : Basse terre, Grande terre, Marie Galante, Les Saintes and La Désirade.
 Guadeloupe’s two main islands are Basse terre to the West and Grande terre to the East, which are separated by a narrow strait that is crossed with bridges.
  1. Basse terre is well known for the breathtaking waterfalls , the rivers, black sand beach and its volcano. Tourists can discover and enjoy the rich ecosystem by doing many activities (jet sky , scuba diving , canyoning).
  2. Grande terre offers a rich cultural heritage, where you can visit museum or rum distillery and has plenty beaches for lovers of sunbathing.
  3. Marie Galante is an authentic and peaceful island with a lot of sugar cane plantations and white beaches. Marie Galante kept  a living heritage : the ox cart. Traditionally used to transport sugar cane, wooden ox carts are an integral part of Guadeloupean heritage. Les Saintes is formed by nine unspoiled islands, two of which are inhabited.
  4. Terre de Haut with its bistro lined streets and the turquoise waters of its bay, a member of the Most Beautiful Bays in the World Club. And Terre de Bas also has plenty to offer: the golden sand of Grande-Anse beach is well worth the detour.
  5. The Forgotten”, La Desirade, which is the oldest island in the Lesser Antilles, and as such a geological Natural Reserve, seems away from time.
Tranquility and simplicity are the characteristics of this island. Sublime white sand beaches, protected by long coral reefs attract snorkelers and swimmers. A stone throw away, discover the untouched Petite-Terre Islands, also listed as Natural Reserves. Also called «  Karukera » , this island has a tropical climat , so the tourists can come and enjoy it anytime of the year. The official language is French but most of the guadeloupean can also speak Creole.

Favorite Beach?

Our favorite beach is La Perle in Deshaies. It’s one of the longest beach in Guadeloupe and everyday you can watch a beautiful sunset.

Favorite Meal?

Our favorite meal is definitely « Dombrés » with Crab and Breadfruit.
Dombrés is a Creole dish native to the Caribbean. It’s made of small balls or patties cooked meal which we accommodate sauce and all kinds of meat, fish or shrimp and red beans. We usually eat it for Easter.

Favorite event?

As a Carnival lover, our favorite event is the Carnival season. It’s a major cultural event which is celebrated over three months: January, February and March.
If you are in Guadeloupe Islands during this period, you cannot miss out on this spectacular and colorful event. I really enjoy the costumes , the choreography and the music of the drums.
