Guadeloupe is part of the Leeward Islands and is famous for it’s butterfly shape. The eastern wing, Grand-Terre, features Pointe-à-Pitre, the island’s biggest city and center of tourism. The western wing, called Basse-Terre, is less developed and dominated by an impressive national park. A narrow channel called the Salt River separates the two halves of the island.
A must visit is Jacques Cousteau’s Underwater Reserve in the waters close to Pigeon Island for an abundance of colorful coral forests and marine life. This underwater world is considered one of the best dive sites you can experience. Nearby are Marie Galante, which offers fantastic snorkeling, and the Gosier islet and its large coral reef. For anchorages, head to Les Saintes and take a stroll around Fort Napoleon on Terre-de-Haut.
