Very nice island, very chill, maybe a little too chill for some, but definitely worth a visit, people are very kind and it's a very nice place
A little tourist place where it is easier to know the customs of Guadeloupe than on the main island. The landscapes are beautiful and the most beautiful beaches of Guadeloupe are present.
Visit the distilleries ... On the other hand, do not rent vehicles from Dugay Location, he is a dishonest pseudo rental company and a thief, he takes advantage of tourists, we have experienced it.
Highly recommend this island! One of my favorite island so far! Almost all the beaches we went were with clear water and silky sand! And from the time off the boat to onboard again, every moment was well spent on this island!🥰🥰🥰
Guadeloupe, overseas département and overseas region of France consisting of a group of islands in the Lesser Antilles chain in the eastern Caribbean Sea. The nearest neighbours of the principal islands are the British overseas territory of Montserrat to the northwest and the republic of Dominica to the south. The island of Martinique, also a French overseas département, lies about 74 miles (120 km) to the south.
The main territory of Guadeloupe consists of the twin islands of Basse-Terre to the west and Grande-Terre to the east, the two being separated by a narrow channel, the Salée River. Other islands in the group are Marie-Galante to the southeast, La Désirade to the east, and the Saintes Islands (Terre-de-Haut and Terre-de-Bas) to the south. Two French overseas collectivities—Saint-Barthélemy and Saint-Martin, the French-administered part of the island of Saint Martin (the southern third of which is administered by the Netherlands as Sint Maarten)—were part of Guadeloupe until 2007.
They are situated about 150 miles (240 km) to the northwest, lying to the northwest of the outer arc of the Lesser Antilles. Basse-Terre, on the island of the same name, is the seat of government. The largest urban area, however, centres around Pointe-à-Pitre on Grande-Terre, the chief port and economic hub of Guadeloupe.
#deshaies is a small area with few beaches in the western island of Guadeloupe - Basse-Terre. Here are one of the few resorts and also many of the best beaches which are very quite normally. This place is far from the main city Pointe-a-Pitre. By bus you will need up to 2 hours to reach it so be patient and also is good to know that the transport on Basse-Terre is not very regular and fast.
This is the small uninhabited island called Ilet du Gosier. It is located just across the largest city on the island of Guadeloupe - Pointe-a-Pitre. There is regular boat service every 30min from the beaches in Le Gosier. Another island of European Union much closer to Florida, than to France, but part of France.
One of my favourite destinations I've ever traveled to is the island of Guadeloupe. It is located in the Carribbean far away from Europe, but is part of France. People say for the americans this is the easiest way to visit France, because is 3h away from Florida. The pictures are from the Sainte-Anne town in Grand Terre - #guadeloupe . The stunning beaches and the creole culture make an unique mixture of modern and traditional, european and american... It is another place I fell in love with!
