Welcome to Guadeloupe


As well as the ‘mainland’ of Guadeloupe, there are a number of small offshore islands including Les Saintes, Marie-Galante and La Désirade, each of which gives visitors its own taste of Guadeloupe’s yesteryear. These are some of the most evocative and untouched destinations in the French Antilles, and shouldn't be missed.
