Basse-Terre Island/Guadeloupe

Introducing Basse-Terre Island

Basse-Terre is Guadeloupe’s trump card. The bigger of the two main islands (and yes, they are separate entities despite being joined by a road), it’s also by far the more dramatic, boasting soaring peaks and thick rainforest within the huge Parc National de la Guadeloupe as well as some excellent beaches and one of the best dive sites in the Caribbean around Pigeon Island and the fabulous Réserve Cousteau. Whatever you do in Guadeloupe, do not miss Basse-Terre.
