Guadeloupe – A Little-Known Caribbean Escape

Caressed by the trade winds, tempered by the ever present sun all year round, lashed by the Atlantic Ocean and lapped by the Caribbean Sea, the Guadeloupean archipelago is definitely blessed by the gods.  An Aquatic dream, Guadeloupe is a butterfly resting on the surface of the Caribbean.

A treat for the eyes, first of all, as they encounter the incredible shades of blue of the Caribbean Sea. Then a treat for the senses with a range of water sports you won’t even be able to get through during your vacation. Stretching out on the sand with your toes dipped in the water, riding the sea on a jetski, diving in search of coral and sponges, seeing the wind swell your sails under an unblemished sky, finding out all about the nature reserve of Grand Cul-de-Sac Marin, taking a catamaran trip in search of white sand banks…You can do anything in the water, and it feels so good ! Relaxation, stimulation, freedom, feeling good… Everyone will think your photos have been touched up, and that your vacation stories are a bit exaggerated.

The islands have lovely white sand beaches but also a wildlife-infested rainforest and the highest waterfall in the Caribbean. Basse-Terre has a rough volcanic terrain; Grande-Terre has rolling hills and flat plains. There are also lush mountainous areas with stunning and unspoiled tropical scenery.The islands are a divers' paradise, described by Jacques Cousteau as among the top 10 dive sites in the world.

If Guadeloupe is part of the Caribbean that you have not yet explored you are missing a vacation spot that you will want to revisit.
