Islands for everyone

An archipelago of several islands (Grande Terre, Basse Terre, La Desirades, Les Saintes, Marie Galante), Guadeloupe is surprisingly diverse and offers a perfect vacation spot, whatever your preferences. White or black beaches, great sea, calm or with bigger waves for bodyboarding, underwater life, mangrove, walking in tropical forest or along the cliffs, volcano, plantations, whatever you choose, you can find it...


The sea is just as you expect it. Warm, accessible easily and with great visibility. There are many spots to go scubadiving or just snorkelling, so take your mask and tuba...


While on Grande Terre you will find great white beaches, like coming from catalogues, on Basse Terre, you will find not less great black beaches full of volcanic sand.


Especially the island of Basse Terre consists of high mountains and ancient (and one still active) volcanoes filled with tropical humid forest. As the high peaks catch the clouds and the rain, the vegetation is everywhere and the island is really green

    Excellent page with brilliant photos! Pointe des Chateaux and Chutes du Carbet - waterfalls look outstanding. It seems to me you had a wonderful holiday this winter, Filip! Thanks for sharing with us!
