Guadeloupe is a French overseas territory and island group, part of the Lesser Antilles in the southern Caribbean Sea.
From above, the two main islands of Basse-Terre and Grand-Terre give the appearance of a butterfly, whilst boasting a mix of quirky beach towns and luxury tourist resorts. The smaller islands of La Desirade, Les Saintes and Marie-Galante, found just offshore from the main islands, have their own unique character and stunning landscapes, too.
In Guadeloupe, take your pick from exploring an incredible national park, relaxing on secluded beaches, hiking a volcano or learning about the world-renowned rum production in one of the distilleries; it truly is one of the most diverse regions in the Caribbean.
Guadeloupe is well served by ferry, with ports on both Grand-Terre and Basse-Terre offering frequent routes to and from the majority of the surrounding islands, operated by a couple of ferry companies.
