The capital of Marie-Galante is exactly what the name indicates: a big village, and nothing more then that. Grand-Bourg is the place where you will arrive when you are visiting the island, and also where you will probably organise you?re transport to move around on the island: cars, scooters and minibusses are offered all over here.
But Grand-Bourg is more then just a transport-hub. It?s small centre is very charming with a nice colonial church at its small central square, a local market at this same square and several nice building here and in the streets around it.
Another very nice thing about Grand-Bourg are the numerous, fantastic murals you see in the streets here. At several places in the centre you?ll see enormous colourful paintings on the walls who give the village a very sunny atmosphere.
Although Grand-Bourg is the biggest town of the island, you shouldn?t expect any exciting nightlife here. In fact it is already difficult to find a restaurant that is open after six o?clock. This might be difficult if you are hungry and desperately looking for someplace, but at least it shows clearly that Marie-Galante is still pure and that tourism is not a big thing here.
Address: Marie-Galante, Grand-Bourg
