La Desirade

 
La Desirade La Desirade, about 10km (6mi) off the eastern tip of Grande-Terre, is the archipelago's least developed and least visited island. It has a long history of isolation, having been a leper colony for over 200 years (the leprosarium closed in the 1950s). These days, islanders engage mainly in fishing, boatbuilding, agriculture and raising sheep, though there are some rustic tourist facilities available. The island looks somewhat like an overturned boat, at least when viewed from Guadeloupe. ...
 

MarieGalante

 
MarieGalante Marie-Galante is a rural island untouched by mass tourism. It offers visitors lovely uncrowded beaches and some great country scenery. Very few English-speaking tourists come this way, which is just as well, as few of the island's 13,000 residents speak any English at all. Much of Guadeloupe's largest outer island is planted in sugar cane. The undistinguished commercial and administrative centre of Grand-Bourg, on the southwestern coast, has about half the population; most of the rest are evenly divided between its two smaller towns, Capesterre and Saint-Louis. ...
 

Musee StJohn Perse

 
Musee StJohn Perse Musee St-John Perse occupies an attractive 19th-century colonial building with ornate wrought-iron balconies. The museum is dedicated to the renowned poet and Nobel laureate Alexis Lger (1887-1975), better known as St John Perse, who grew up just down the street at No 54. The house offers both a glimpse of a period Creole home and displays on Perse's life and work. Hours: Mon-Fri 9:00am-5:00pm, Sat 8:30am-12:30pm ...
 

Gouadeloupe

 
Gouadeloupe Originally this Island of beautiful waters was called Karukera but Christopher Columbus renamed it in 1493 for Santa Maria de Guadalupe de Estremadura, just before he was driven from the island. Guadalupe comprises of two large islands, Basse Terre and Grande Terre, and several smaller ones, of which St Martin is shared with the Dutch kingdom. In 1763 the isles came under French rule and they still occupy the island, now mainly as tourists. Pack a French dictionary if you plan a trip here for its a part of France (like Hawai for the Usa). The people and culture is a harmonious blend of European, African and East Indian origin. Guadeloupe is well known for its spectacular beaches, most of which are well sheltere...
 

TerredeHaut

 
TerredeHaut Small, unhurried Terre-de-Haut is French in nature, Mediterranean in appearance and, all in all, one of the most appealing islands in the Caribbean. It's a tiny package with a lot to offer, including a beautiful landscape of volcanic hills and deep bays. In the height of the season it can get overrun with tourists, especially on weekends. Many islanders still rely on fishing as a mainstay; you can often find them mending nets along the waterfront and see their colourful locally made boats, called saintoises, which line the shore. ...
