LGBT Travellers

Guadeloupe usually earns OK marks from gay travel organizations, as gay and lesbian rights are protected under French law. However, attitudes on the ground tend to be far less tolerant and prejudice against gay people is not unusual, although it's not nearly as extreme as on some Caribbean islands. Gay couples usually do not publicly express affection or advertise their sexual orientation, although hoteliers don’t seem to mind if same-sex couples share a bed. There is little or no gay scene here – most introductions happen via the internet.
